3. Summer Schemes

If you are offering a play or holiday scheme during the summer for local children who would not otherwise enjoy a break, you can apply for financial support.


‘Summer Schemes’ funding is available to organizations and groups who provide activities and day trips for young (local) people from impoverished backgrounds, during the July and August schools’ breaks. It can also be used to help finance longer trips - provided the destination venues are highly reputable, whilst being reasonably priced and within the UK. (All third-party funding relative to young people will be conditional on a clearly promoted understanding of the duties of care towards vulnerables and minors, and on the existence and application of relevant policies and safety checks in these regards.)     



The date for the next Summer Scheme Meeting (2016) will be given in the Key Information area of this site, once agreed. Please be aware that applications must be received at least two weeks ahead of this date.
