About this cause

About our cause

City Lit adult education college in Covent Garden helps thousands of adults each year enhance or transform their lives. We deliver outstanding value for money – supporting wider economic, health, cultural and social agendas. We continue to offer an exceptionally diverse range of courses, meeting the needs of a wide spectrum of learners, including the disengaged and disadvantaged, those seeking new or enhanced professional skills, employers and individuals with an insatiable appetite or curiosity for learning.

Who will benefit from your donation?

Your donation will go to City Lit’s student bursary fund. The bursary was set up in 2007 to ensure that, in the current economic climate, no-one is excluded from learning. It is here to help adults experiencing financial difficulties to enjoy the many opportunities learning can bring. For some students – including those who might benefit most from attending – the bursary can help with course fees, books and materials. It is particularly aimed at students who wish to study courses for vocational reasons or to help transform their lives.

“Going to City Lit has given me that rarest commodity – hope. I was made redundant in the beginning of 2008. Going back to study has made a huge difference to me, it is so exciting to be learning, moving forward and being active. Without the student bursary, it would not have been possible.”
