The Henry Smith Charity has announced that its Holiday Grant for Children Programme will re-open for applications on Monday 2nd May 2016.
Through the programme, 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 usually £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. Activities should take place between Friday 1st July and Wednesday 31st August.
The closing date for applications is Friday 22nd July 2016.
