The Hilden Charitable Fund has announced that its Summer Playscheme Grants Programme is now open for applications.
The aim of the scheme is to help community groups run summer playschemes for the benefit of children from disadvantaged backgrounds. The funding is available to voluntary agencies with an income of less than £150,000. Some priority will be given to projects which show they are inclusive of children from refugee families, and show BME involvement.
Funding of up to £1,000 is available for summer playschemes for children aged 5 – 18 years lasting for 2 – 6 weeks with strong volunteer support.
The closing date for applications is the 14th May 2015.
