Grants are available for schools, youth groups, not-for-profit organisations, and charities to provide access to recreational trips or holidays for groups of children aged 13 years and younger who experience disadvantage or disability and live in an area of high deprivation.
Grant size: £500 – £2,500
Length: One-off short grants
Decision timescale: 6 weeks
You can ask for help towards a day trip or a longer holiday of up to seven days. These can be to the countryside or a city, but must be within the UK and outside of children’s immediate localities. Examples include camping, trips to adventure activity centres or the seaside.
They prioritise applications that will benefit disadvantaged or disabled children living in the most deprived areas of the UK. For Holiday Grants this means areas that fall within the bottom 20% according to the National Indices of Deprivation.
They can be more flexible on levels of deprivation where disabled children are involved, but it will still be one factor in the assessment.
