Service Children - Funding

Schools across Wales are being very proactive and doing some great work to ensure that their Service children are not disadvantaged due of the impact of being part of an Armed Forces family. Click here to see examples of good practice.

Sometimes, schools and Local authorities need to access additional funds in order to continue to support Service children in the most effective way. SSCE Cymru recognised that it’s not always easy identifying what funds are available, what grants are most relevant to their project and what is the best way to approach completing the application forms.

Service children – funding guidance for schools in Wales

A group of SSCE Cymru stakeholders have produced this document in order to provide schools and Local authorities in Wales with a guide on the grant streams that are available, along with advice on completing the application forms. This advice comes from members of the funding panels, as well as schools and local authorities that have been successful in applying for the grants.
