Small grants to help children and young people reach their full potential

Schools, colleges and community groups in England can apply for grants through the Blue Spark Foundation to support the education and development of children and young people through educational, cultural, sporting and other projects.

Of particular interests are projects which will help enhance the self-confidence, team working skills and future employability of children and young people. In most cases grants will be made on a relatively small scale.

Many grants will be under £2,000, most will be under £5,000 and only in a few cases will grants exceed £10,000.

The funding provided can be for physical assets (such as iPads, sports equipment, or lighting for stage productions) or for services or facilities (such as sports coaching or music or drama tuition) or simply for the provision of experiences (such as theatre visits).

Applications can be submitted at any time.
