The Worrall & Fuller Exhibition Fund

The Worrall and Fuller charity began in 1689 and supports the education and training of children and young people aged 5 to 25 in need who live in, or have parents studying or working in, the southern part of Islington, London. This area was formerly called Finsbury.

The Fund is a very small charity which gives small grants from about £250 to £1000 each, to around 25 to 30 children and young people each year.

The grants are given only for educational and vocational purposes. This wide definition means the Fund can consider lots of applications for help, but its current priorities are to support the following:

  • Extra-curricular, non-mainstream education, and out of school activities
  • These should be related to arts, sports, music lessons, dance, scouting etc, and for primary and secondary school age children up to the age of 18. We can support fees, equipment, clothing and trips etc. The activity should be structured and taught in groups or individually, and progress reports/certificates awarded that show attendance and progress.
  • School uniform and school study/training equipment costs (e.g. books, IT equipment)
  • Organised School trips during term-time with an educational purpose
  • School-leavers about to enter their first year in Further or Higher Education

The Fund is prepared to support, and therefore get to know, children over a period of time as long as they can demonstrate progression in their field of interest, talent and learning. It will support school-leavers it has supported in the past who are about to go to further or higher education with grants towards study materials (but not course fees).
