Outdoor education for disadvantaged children and young people (The Kids Fund)
As a charity and not-for-profit organisation, the FSC is the UK’s leading provider of education ‘in, about and for the environment’. The FSC works directly with 80,000 people each year, the majority of whom are young people. Its wide-ranging brief is to share knowledge, understanding and skills right across the spectrum of arts, humanities and sciences.
FSC charges for its courses and this may present a financial barrier, preventing some children attending. FSC runs its own bursary or support scheme called The Kids Fund which pays 80% of the course cost for groups of students to attend FSC courses. FSC wishes to increase the level of funding available to support the Kids Fund.
