Learning At The Burrell

The Burrell Collection re-opens on the 29th of March 2022 and we are delighted that our grant of £40k is in place to fund a Learning Assistant and provide over 100 school trips for children across Glasgow and the West.

Awarded in 2019 prior to the pandemic, the funding will enable over 3,800 children from Glasgow’s most deprived areas to visit the museum as private buses will transport them from primary schools, nurseries and early learning centres.

The grant has also supported the recruitment of a Learning Assistant to ensure that school groups receive a formal learning experience which will include facilitated workshops.

Over the past 5 years the Merchants House has awarded over £2.8 million to charities in Glasgow and the West of Scotland. Learn more by reading our Grant Stories and find out how you can support our charity by hosting a meeting or event in our centrally located venue.
