The Henry Smith’s Charity’s Holiday Grant for Children Programme has re-opened applications for activities taking place between Sunday 1st May and Thursday 30th June 2016.
Schools, youth groups and not-for-profit organisations can apply for grants towards holidays or outings within the UK for children aged 13 and under who are from deprived areas or have a disability.
Applications can be considered for holidays or outings which aim to provide children with a break they would not otherwise have the opportunity to experience. The maximum grant is £2,500. Grants are limited to a maximum of two-thirds of the total cost of a trip, as the charity expect some funding to be raised elsewhere.
Recently funded projects include Govan Youth Information Project which received £39,000 towards a three-year project which included holiday programmes and youth provision for disadvantaged children and young people in Glasgow.
The application deadline is Friday 20th May 2016.
