The Santander Foundation helps disadvantaged people through their two charitable priorities: Financial Capability and Education and Training.
Education and training - This could be any activity disadvantaged people undertake where they improve their confidence in a skill or their understanding of a subject. This does not have to be formal training or lead to a qualification, although those activities would be eligible too. Examples could include reminiscence projects for older people and art and craft sessions for disadvantaged children. Grants of up to £10,000 can be awarded anywhere in the UK. The average grant is £4,000.
