British and Foreign School Society

Summary

The British & Foreign School Society (BFSS) gives grants to charities for educational activities. Grants are given to organisations with UK charitable status and are for the purpose of advancing educational opportunity in the UK and developing countries. BFSS have created a new programme dedicated to improving approaches to the educational attainment of ‘looked after children’ and young carers in the UK. They wish to pilot novel approaches to improving the educational attainment of looked after children and young carers which can be scaled up so that in time they are able to take advantage of opportunities afforded by tertiary education and employment. The fund also welcomes applications for projects designed to address the need for re-establishing and renewing education in Nepal and other countries where the provision of education (including facilities, resources and teacher training) has suffered from conflict, natural disaster or neglect.
