Developed in conjunction with children's charity Barnardos, the Max e-Grants programme provides assistance to support individual or small groups of children so they won't feel isolated or left out of activities due to social or economic disadvantage beyond their control.

Schools and early childhood centres may nominate children aged from four to 18 years old for a grant. The types of grants we fund for individuals or small groups are for school books and stationery, uniforms and equipment, special tuition, and subsidies enabling children to join their class on excursions and camps.

The latest grant round is now closed.

If you have already received a grant, you can find instructions on how to finalise and report on the outcomes of the project here
