ASDAN, part of the Skills and Education Group, is a registered charity and as part of their charitable objectives they have established a fund to provide grants to registered centres. Each year, ASDAN designates a percentage of any surplus funds generated in previous years towards the grants scheme. The total amount available for grant funding is around £30,000.

ABC Awards Centres registered with ASDAN can apply for the grants for educational purposes, especially where these help narrow the gaps in educational attainment and alleviate the effects of deprivation and poverty across the UK and overseas. ASDAN give their funds to centres that are looking to work in an innovative way, within the framework of ASDAN’s vision and values, to improve the life chances of disadvantaged young people in this country and overseas.

Projects from previous years have included setting up a school radio station; growing and selling fresh produce; visiting partner schools in Europe; and purchasing equipment for animation workshops.

Grant applications for 2017 are now open and will close on 31 January 2017. Visit www.asdan.org.uk/about/asdan-grants for further information and to submit your grant application online.
