Support us

Thank you for your interest in supporting what we do. As an educational charity, our work relies on grants and donations, so your generosity is invaluable. Anything you can give will contribute directly to the vision to change the nature of science-faith communication for generations of young people across the UK, and beyond.

Why do we need your support?

During such challenging financial times in schools, the subsidized costs that the [Faraday Youth and Schools] team offer to schools mean that we can still look forward to their visits even though budgets are shrinking. This, in addition to their wonderful content, makes the Faraday Youth Team an absolutely invaluable asset.”  Teacher at a secondary school

The Faraday Institute for Science and Religion is a registered charity in the UK. The crucial support of  external grants and donations ensures that the Youth and Schools team is able to offer science-faith resources and opportunities to anyone interested in supporting young people in exploring their big questions.

We believe that all young people should be equipped to engage with the big questions, challenges and opportunities of life and society with wonder, wisdom and respect – and that the opportunity to develop these skills should not be dependent on their financial or other circumstances.  We are therefore committed to fostering opportunities for people of all backgrounds, worldviews and life-experiences to respectfully engage with science-faith interactions. To this end, whilst we do charge for our events, workshops and online resources, we are committed to keeping costs as low as we can, and offering concessionary rates for those who need them. Available budgets vary significantly amongst schools, churches, training institutions, and individuals, with the majority struggling to cover the costs of our events. As a result, the support of external organisations and individuals, through grants and donations, is currently vital to our programme.

“Faraday is local, trusted, reliable and excellent quality. Concessionary rates are vital.  We do not have funds available in school to pay for visits of this kind, so all the funding we provide comes from voluntary donations from parents. This never meets the full cost of the day…  Without subsidy on the costs from elsewhere, we would not be able to afford Faraday.” Teacher at a primary school
