Welcome to the Bedgebury Foundation

The Foundation's 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 the Counties of Kent and East Sussex. The geographical restriction does not apply to ex Bedgebury School pupils and their children or dependants.

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

Support is offered 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 or independent schools..
