Despite many schools across the UK being run via public funding, there are a lot of things that budgets don’t always allow for; additional books, computer access tools or sporting equipment, for example. Luckily there are many organisations and charitable funds in Britain that allow schools and educational institutions to apply for grants, helping to fund extra teaching aids and children’s play equipment.
Who Provides Grants?
There an array of both national and regional charities offering grants for schools, including those like the Arts Council and the Sports Council. A lot of small local Educational Trusts can also offer grants for both individuals and organisations, whilst money from the Lottery, European Funding and the UK Government and its agencies can also help.
