The Shipwrights' Educational fund is a registered charity, number 313249.
How we deal with our charitable and educational aims
There is one committee which handles this work, entitled The Education and Charities Committee, chaired by a Court Assistant. Applications to the Company for help are handled by sub-committees of the E&C Committee, dedicated respectively to education and charity.
The Education Sub-Committee
The Shipwrights Education Sub-Committee meets three times a year, in February, June and November when decisions are made to distribute funds from its charitable reserves. Normally applications are not considered outside those meeting dates. Applications should be made in good time to allow the Committee to give them due consideration. Appeals are always acknowledged as soon as possible after receipt.
