John Lyon’s Charity gives grants to benefit children and young people up to the age of 25 who live in nine boroughs in northwest London: Barnet, Brent, Camden, Ealing, Hammersmith & Fulham, Harrow, Kensington & Chelsea and the Cities of London and Westminster.

The Charity’s mission is to promote the life-chances of children and young people through education. Grants are awarded to registered charities and organisations with automatic charitable status. The Charity does not give grants to individuals. For more information, please click here. Grants are awarded to organisations that work with young people up to the age of 25 (or sometimes up to 30 for young people with disabilities).

What is the priority?

The priority is education, which is consistent with the interests of our founder, John Lyon, when he founded Harrow School. However, we see education in its broadest sense. We support a wide range of projects that provide opportunities for young people to participate in a wide range of activities. For case studies on recently funded projects, see our Programme Area section.
