These fun, educational experiences help young people to develop a wide range of valuable personal and social skills, as well as providing the chance to learn outside of the classroom.

In 2019, we provided 209 schools and youth organisations with grants totalling £49,476.

The Ricards Lodge High School used their Educational Visit Grant from the Jack Petchey Foundation to take their dance students to the Move It 2018 event in London. This visit encouraged the students to develop their dance and performance skills and gave them the chance to learn more about career opportunities available within the arts.

Over the years over 11,340 young people have been supported with Educational Visit Grants.

To apply for this opportunity, organisations need to be running our Achievement Award Scheme. They can then apply for two grants per year, per scheme, of £1,200 per trip, maximum £20 per person.

SEND schools/organisations, Pupil Referral Units and Alternative Education Provisions can apply up to £60 per person for day trips and £100 per person for residentials trips.

We may by exception consider a contribution towards costs for more than one member of staff. if you would like us to consider this, please contact your Grants Officer for advice before you apply.
