Henry Smith Holiday Grants
Posted: Wed, 08 May 2019 15:22
The Henry Smith Charity is now accepting applications for one off, short term holidays grants to be used between 1st July and 31st August 2019.
Schools, youth groups, not for profit organisations and charities are all eligible to apply.
Applications can be made for grants towards a single trip, which could be a day trip or a longer residential of up to seven days in length. This could be to a countryside or city location but must be outside of the children's immediate locality. Examples include camping, trips to adventure activity centres or the seaside.
The funds are targeted at children from the communities that fall within the worst 20% measured by indexes of deprivation.
Grants will fund a maximum of two-thirds of the total cost of a holiday or trip.
Grants are normally between £500 and £2500. Applications can be made at any time prior to 2nd July but will normally take 6 weeks to be considered.
