The Ironmongers’ Company aim to provide support for projects surrounding disadvantaged young people and children to help them achieve their potential.
Grants can only be awarded to a registered charity whose projects, meet the entirety of the following:
- Must be within the UK
- Help disadvantaged children and young people who are under the ages of 25
- Include educational activities that lead to the developmental outcome of motivation, skills and learning.
They are looking for projects that are evident in providing educational benefits towards a specific group of young people or children. Including a full explanation in order to be considered for equipment, explaining how you plan to support these activities.
Grants given average at £4,000 and range from a few hundred pounds to £10,000 and must be spent within 12 months of being awarded. If successful it is expected as a recipient to submit a written report of evaluation, 3 months from your completion.
The Company aims to make a noticeable difference and so preference is given to smaller organisations, as well as projects that would need a significant amount of their cost covered.
