We support our community in two ways:

  1. Ark Elvin Community Support Fund
  2. Ark Elvin Community Kitchen

See more details below.

What is the Elvin Community Support Fund?

The aim of the Fund is to help families who have difficulties in paying for:

  • School uniform, shoes or sports equipment
  • Materials or equipment necessary for academic studies
  • Essential food supplies
  • IT/Wi-Fi support
  • Other necessary expenses

The decision for the amount and type of support provided is determined on a case-by-case basis. Payments from the fund are discretionary and do not need to be repaid. Payments will be made in the form of vouchers or in some limited cases through Ark Elvin directly purchasing the required items.

Who is eligible?

We encourage applications from families of pupils currently attending Ark Elvin Academy who are struggling financially and would benefit from the additional support that we can offer.

What evidence do I need to provide?

We don’t formally ask for evidence for this application, the online application form that details your family circumstances is usually all that is required to make a decision. We might contact you if we need more information. All forms, correspondence and communication will be dealt with in the strictest confidence by Ark Elvin.
