Grants of between £500 and £1,000 are available to registered charities to fund summer play schemes for children between the ages of 5-16 years.
To be eligible for funding, the charity will have to have an annual income of less than £100,000 and the playscheme must run for a minimum of 2 weeks or 10 days during the summer holidays. Priority is given to small local playschemes involving a large number of children especially those with disabilities or from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Projects supported will also be expected to make good use of volunteers, encourage past and current users to participate and ensure that funds awarded are being well used. If the applicant is not a registered charity then a registered charity may apply on the scheme’s behalf.
The funding is being made available by the Woodward Charitable Trust.
The closing date for applications is midday on Friday 3rd April 2020.
