The Henry Smith Charity has re-opened its Holiday Grant for Children Programme, with the closing date for applications being Friday 21st July.
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 from deprived areas, or who have a disability. Applications can be considered for holidays or outings that aim to provide children with a break they would not otherwise have the opportunity to experience. The maximum grant is typically £2,500 for any one trip.
Grants are normally limited to a maximum of two-thirds of the total cost of a trip, as the charity would expect some local partnership funding to be in place. Additionally, the Henry Smith Charity must receive the application at least 6 weeks before the date of the trip, to allow for administrative processing and decision-making.
