Education Funding Solutions


Accessing funding for schools, colleges and universities

WP is employed by an ever-increasing number of education and training providers to secure project funding, including those specific to the further and higher education sectors.

We have considerable practical expertise of accessing a wide range of funding streams both in the United Kingdom and the European Union. We have been working for over 15 years with major learning and skills development funds such as the European Social Fund. Our experience as fundraisers covers UK government departments, public agencies, National Lottery, Trust Funds and Foundations.

WP has also developed a novel approach to capital fundraising programmes that cannot be fully met by state funding alone. This can help schools, colleges and universities triple their funds in order to build new facilities for the benefit of the whole community.

Our innovative fundraising concept involves a form of Social Bond as the basis for a share scheme that can be ring-fenced and used as an investment vehicle to drive community projects.

Social Bonds are a type of social finance which has growing interest in the UK and which can apply to schools, colleges and universities. Parents, community members or supporters are able to purchase a share in the community venture to enable it to achieve a particular funding target.

We are currently able to offer the following benefits to participants:

WP has supported two projects with major sports clubs using this model and can draw on this experience to assist clubs, charities and similar organisations with the process and associated documentation. You’ll be able to build on past good practice for a stronger future.

WP could save you time and money and help you reach your funding targets sooner. For more details on this scheme, call us on 01329 822571 or email at
