Under the Henry Smith’s Charity Holiday Grants for Children 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 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.
Grants of between £500 and £2,500 are available; to cover a maximum of two thirds of the cost of a holiday or trip, the remainder of the funding must be raised elsewhere.
Applications for trips that take place between the 1st May and the 30th June 2017 will be accepted between the 1st March and the 19th May, decisions are made on a first come-first served basis (within the application periods stated) until funds are spent.
