The new Arts-Based Learning Fund from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation (PHF) has grants available to support charities, community organisations, social enterprises and not-for-profit companies active in the arts that are working with schools, further education colleges and teachers to enhance the lives, development and achievements of children and young people.
Two types of grant are available to support work at different stages of development:
- The Arts-based Learning ‘explore and test’ grants provide funding for up to two years to help test or evaluate new approaches
- The Arts-based Learning ‘more and better’ grants provide longer, larger grants to help increase the impact and effectiveness of work which has already shown promise or positive impact.
The Foundation welcome a range of applications and are particularly interested in funding work for the benefit of primary-age children (this could include, for example, projects involving a secondary and local primary schools) and work taking place in areas of social and economic deprivation outside of London.
Applications can be submitted at any time.
