Grants are available for schools, community groups, clubs, societies or other organisations in England to improve the education and development of children and young people through educational, cultural, sporting, and other activities.
The BlueSpark Foundation is a registered charity whose objective is to fund or part fund projects which aim to improve the education and development of children and young people by means of educational, cultural, sporting or other activities.
The funding is intended to support projects which have the following objectives:
- Encouraging independence
- Developing team working skills
- Developing self confidence
- Promoting creativity and individuality
- Encouraging aspiration
- Enhancing educational achievement
- Widening educational horizons
The funding is for relatively small-scale projects which might not happen at all or would only happen on a lesser scale without the support of BlueSpark.
Many grants will be under £2,000, most will be under £5,000 and only in a few cases will grants exceed £10,000.
