Funding to Support Education in Disadvantaged Areas

The BFSS supports charitable organisations running UK and International projects to improve access to education or the quality of education for vulnerable or deprived children and young people under the age of 25.

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.

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 25th January 2022.
