Are you a youth worker? Want to know more about how grants are awarded? Consider becoming a trustee of our grant-making foundation.
St Giles & St George Education aims to improve the educational opportunities of children and young people aged 0–25 across Bloomsbury, Covent Garden and south Westminster. We provide grants to not-for-profit organisations (including schools and churches) to deliver activities that support our mission. Our grants budget is approx £400,000 per annum.
There is more information about our grants elsewhere on our website.
We are looking for someone who can bring their knowledge/experience of supporting young people to our charity to ensure that we are funding the kind of initiatives that young people really want. The charity is currently undertaking a strategic review. One of our medium-term goals is to better understand how we can enable youth participation and voice across our grant-making, both in the organisations that we fund and across the charity itself.
Our Trustees meet quarterly for a couple of hours in the evening usually via Zoom. In addition, we usually have an annual strategic review meeting in person.
