Funding for disadvantaged areas

Posted on: July 19, 2021

Grants are available to support schools and registered charities that wish to undertake educational work with children and young people under the age of 25 in disadvantaged areas within the UK and international projects working with marginalised communities.

The British & Foreign Schools Society (BFSS) normally makes grants totalling about £900,000 in any one year.

For UK projects the focus is on projects to improve the educational outcomes and life chances of Young Carers and Children Looked After. Grants of between 30,000 and £100,000 are available (maximum £30,000 per year for multi year projects).

For UK projects, the funding is available to UK registered charities with an annual income of between £5,000 and £2.5 million, and at least three years of continuous accounts. UK based and state-funded schools, academies, colleges and other educational establishments regardless of their income size are also eligible providing they can demonstrate a network effect beyond one individual school.

For international projects the focus will be on improving the quality, sustainability, and access to education for young people within international marginalised and deprived communities.  Grants o between £5,000 and £60,000 are available.  (maximum £30,000 per year).

For international projects the BFSS funds small to medium sized organisations with an annual income of between £5,000 and £2.5 million.   Organisations must have UK charitable status. We do not fund non-UK based organisations, Community Interest Companies (CICs) or individuals.

The Society also offers a small number of specific grants for organisations and individuals through its Subsidiary Trusts.   

There is a two stage application process and the next closing date for stage 1 applications is the 24th January 2021.
