The John Lyon’s Charity has announced that its Schools in Partnership Fund is open for applications.

Through the programme, the charity is making grants of between £25,000 and £50,000 to groups of state schools (in partnership with local voluntary organisations where appropriate) for projects aimed at supporting their most challenged pupils, strengthening links with home life and coordinating the support of other available professionals.

The funding is available to schools in Barnet, Brent, Camden, Ealing, Hammersmith & Fulham, Harrow, Kensington & Chelsea and the Cities of London and Westminster.

Previous projects supported include;

  • St Anselm’s RC Catholic Primary School which received a grant of £38,000 for a play therapy project with four other schools
  • the Catholic Children’s Society (Westminster)
  • Kingsbury High School which received a grant of £15,000 for a psychotherapy project with Brent Centre for Young People.

The Schools in Partnership Fund has a two stage application procedure. The Trustee meets in March, June and November. Proposals should be received by the Grants Team at least four months before.
