Sir Walter St John’s Educational Charity makes grants to promote the education and training of children and young people under the age of 25, who are in financial need.   The Charity covers the London Boroughs of Wandsworth and Lambeth, with preference given to the Battersea area.

Most of the Charity’s funding is currently used to support local organisations providing education and training opportunities for children and young people in Wandsworth and Lambeth. 
A small amount of grant aid is also set aside each year to support individual students (usually aged 19 to 24) who are in need of funding.  Block grants are also available for local colleges for distribution to their students.

Details of the Charity’s current grant-making programmes for organisations are available here.
