The Mercers’ are launching a funding opportunity under their Literacy Special Initiative Phase 2. Grants of £150k-£300k will be available.

Under their “Literacy Special Initiative Phase 2” plans, they aim to fund two cohorts of grantees from January 2024.

They wish to support projects that help Children think of themselves as readers and writers, who have a voice. For the first cohort they are looking for proposals that:

  • Develop the child as a reader and writer by promoting reading and writing for pleasure, and;
  • include the development of oracy skills
  • focus on Key Stages 3 and 4 (12 – 16-year-olds)
  • focus on children facing disadvantage / those most in need of this kind of support
  • are inclusive, equitable and sustainable

This webinar will provide detail on the funding opportunity and how to apply. Registered attendees will receive a Teams link on the morning of the 12th June to access the webinar.
