grants to individuals

These are for residents in TW9, TW10, SW13 & SW14, and staff in the voluntary sector or schools who support residents in TW9, TW10, SW13 & SW14

In today's workplace, people may need additional qualifications or training in order to find employment, to improve their career prospects and salary potential, or to move to a new sector.  Some applicants may be returning to education from a low educational background; some will be building on previous educational achievements; others may wish to train in a new sector due to changed circumstances or limited opportunities in their field. 

Our current education grants prioritise people who face additional barriers to study, training and employment, such as single parents, carers, people with a disability.  Priority is also given to staff in the voluntary sector and schools who wish to attend a course that benefits both their personal development and the work of their employer.  

Our grants can be used towards course fees, equipment, childcare, travel and/or other expenses, for those who cannot afford to pay the full cost.  We are not currently funding post-graduate study.  We also expect applicants to have researched and accessed student finance in full before submitting an application.

If you wish to apply for an education grant, please complete our online application form.  Forms are saved as you complete them and you can work on them over several sessions.  In order to access your form, simply return to our website using the same laptop/device as before, click on the form you started and you will return to the application as you left it.  Please bear in mind information is saved for two weeks only. 

Once you have submitted an application form, our Grants Manager will contact you for an informal interview and to request proof of residence and household income.  References will also be taken up.


Grants for Schools and Educational Projects

As well as annual Child Support grants provided to schools to support disadvantaged pupils to access eg, class trips, residential journeys, swimming lessons, other co-curricular activities, we also support schools and organisations with non-statutory educational initiatives and programmes that promote learning opportunities for children and adults in TW9, TW10, SW13 and SW14.
