CHARITY EDUCATION GRANTS FOR CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE OF FINSBURY, SOUTH ISLINGTON

About Us

The Worrall and Fuller charity began in 1689 and supports the education and training of children and young people in need who live in, or have parents working in, the southern part of Islington, London. This area was formerly called Finsbury. We are a very small charity which gives small grants from about £250 to £750 each, to around 25 to 30 children and young people each year.
Our small income of approximately £20,000pa comes from our historic invested endowment, a small agricultural rental, and donations from generous businesses and individuals.

How we can help

We support children and young people by providing small individual grants mostly ranging from £250 to £750. The grants are given only for educational and vocational purposes. This wide definition means we can consider lots of applications for help, but our current priorities are to support the following:

  1. Extra-curricular, non-mainstream education, and out of school activities

    These should be related to arts, sports, music lessons, dance, scouting, Duke of Edinburgh’s Award etc, for primary and secondary school age children. We can support fees, equipment, clothing and trips etc. The activity should be structured and taught in groups or individually, and progress reports/certificates awarded that show attendance and progress.

  2. School uniform and school study/training equipment costs

    (e.g. books)

    Please note that only in exceptional circumstances are grants awarded to school pupils for laptops and IT equipment.

  3. Organised educational trips

  4. Students in Further and Higher Education

    We will support students with grants towards study materials, including laptops and IT equipment, but not course fees.

Adults of 18 and over who have left school are advised to apply in their own right.
