Leader Award Grant

We have increased our Leader Award Grants to £1000!

The Leader Award Grant (formerly Small Grants for Leaders) programme allows organisations that are successfully running the Jack Petchey Achievement Award Scheme to apply for a small grant of up to £1000 to further enhance their work with young people.

Schools and organisations can invest the money in something special that they would not usually have the funds for. This might be specialist equipment for a sports team or a fun trip out for the whole class! Schools and organisations can use the grant in whatever way they know would benefit young people most.

Our Leader Award Grants have supported around 800,000 young people in schools and youth organisations across London and Essex.

Organisations are eligible for a Leader Award Grant if they have applied for and received a Leader Award within the past 6 months.

All schools and organisations that have an active eligible Leader Award will automatically be notified when the programme is open for applications and will be able to apply via our Community.
