Holiday Grants for Disadvantaged and Disabled Children

Schools, youth groups, not for profit organisations and charities will be able to apply for grants of £500 to £2,500 to support recreational trips or holidays within the UK for groups of disabled or disadvantaged children (aged 13 or under).

Priority will be given to applications coming from the 20% most deprived areas in the UK.

Funded by the Henry Smith Charity, grants can cover up to two-thirds of the cost of a holiday or trip lasting one to seven days.

In this round, trips must be taken before the end of August 2019. For more details and to apply, complete the eligibility quiz on the website and submit the application form online at least 6 weeks before the trip is due to take place. Although the deadline is the 16th November 2019, decisions are made on a first come-first served basis until all the funds have been allocated.

Applications must be made at least six weeks before the trip or holiday is due to take place.
