Not-for-profit organisations in the UK that are working with children and young people using the arts and creative media can apply for funding of up to £50,000 through the Ragdoll Foundation’s Open Grants Programme.
The Ragdoll Foundation’s vision is to support projects where the concerns of childhood can be heard. Organisations can apply for both one-off short-term projects and for projects lasting up to three years. Preference will be given to those projects which have a deep commitment to listening to children and allow the perceptions and feelings of children themselves to be better understood. The Foundations is mainly interested in applications that involve children during their early years, but appropriate projects for older children (up to 18 years) will also be considered. Whilst the Foundation will fund work in and around London, they will prioritise projects taking place elsewhere in the UK.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
