The Field Studies Council is an independent educational charity committed to raising awareness about the natural world. They have announced that the next closing date for applications to its Kids Fund is the 1st March 2015.
The Council works through a network of 17 residential and day centres in the UK providing courses for schools and colleges at all levels in addition to adult individuals & families courses, outreach education, training and consultancy. The Kids Fund aims to bring environmental understanding to disadvantaged young people by attending a course at a Field Studies Council centre. It helps disadvantaged young people to attend a course who may otherwise be excluded due to some form of disadvantage – health, mobility, deprivation or financial. The Kids Fund will pay for up to 80% of the course fee for groups of disadvantaged young people to attend a non-curriculum day or residential course at an FSC Learning Location. This includes all equipment, tuition and waterproof hire costs. Food and accommodation are included for residential courses.
