Welcome to the Bedgebury Foundation

The Foundation objective is charitable grant making towards the education of young people (under 25) and adults who teach young people. Due to high demand awards are only available to those who live or have had their secondary education in Kent and East Sussex.

Individuals such as school children,students, clergy, teaching staff, teaching assistants, young people who are unemployed or young offenders.

Supporting applicants where the lack of funding is likely to be the main barrier to success. Grants will be awarded to those in the greatest financial, mental or physical need and will not be for mainstream education including fees for degree courses.
