The Charity makes grants to the school and to individuals.

We require that each application has the support of the school.  This means we expect that you will ask a member of staff to provide a short statement supporting your application. (Or another colleague in the case of staff applications).
The decision to award a grant will be made by the trustees, their decision is final.
A decision may need to wait until a scheduled scheduled trustees meeting.

All grants will be subject to available funds and school priorities.

Additional supporting information should be emailed to enquiries@mwef.org.uk

The Form below can be used to submit an application.
