Collective grants

We are here to help ease the difficulties that sometimes happen with the education of children of members of the Armed Forces as a result of their parents’ service. Education for children and young people is a vital part of their lives and our modern society.  Children should not miss out and we aim to support the most disadvantaged children to improve education.

Collective grants are awarded to an education provider (normally a school or education authority) to help provide educational support for service pupils. Such support is likely to include a specific educational intervention as a result of which the improved educational outcomes of the service children can be demonstrated. We may also be able to help with a grant to assist an individual child to overcome difficulties linked to their parents’ service and mobility.

See below to see if your organisation could be eligible.

Over the last 2 years we have given collective grants of over £300k to 10 schools/education providers, reaching over 500 service children.

The case studies below describe how we have helped.

Success Stories

Applying for a collective grant

The first step is to answer a few short questions about your school/organisation. If you meet the application criteria you will be asked to complete a second form with your contact details and a brief summary of the nature of your enquiry. We will then contact you to discuss the best way forward which may be to invite you to complete an online application. Once the completed application has been received, it will be considered by the Trust at the next Trustees' meeting. We will contact you if we need any more information and will keep you up to date with progress. Please download our Collective Application Guidelines here for more information.
