About Family Action’s Educational Grants Programme

Family Action distributes grants to individuals over the age of 14, looking to unlock their educational potential by participating in further education.

Many individuals face challenges during their time at college which may mean they’re unable to complete their studies and pursue their future career goals. For others, their life situation may change meaning they need to re-train to gain employment that suits their family life.

Family Action’s Educational Grants Programme helps individuals to begin their studies as well as supporting existing students to continue and complete their studies.
