Haddenham Educational Charity Grants

Applications are open for grants from Haddenham Educational Charity. The charity provides small grants to support residents of Haddenham who need help with the costs associated with education or vocational courses.

Whilst the Parish Council does not have the resources to means test applications, in order for the grants to have the greatest impact, they are intended for those most in need of financial assistance. 

All forms of study, from Reception to Post Graduate, will be considered, including arts, sports and apprenticeships.

More information can be found on the Parish Council website, including the grant awarding policy and application form, or by contacting the Parish Clerk.

The next meeting of the charity will take place on 11th October 2021. Those who would like their application to be considered should submit a completed application form to clerk@haddenham-bucks-pc.gov.uk or the Parish Council Office by 30th September 2021.
