Holiday Grants for Disadvantaged and Disabled Children – 2nd July 2018 (UK)

Schools, youth groups, not for profit organisations and charities have until the 2nd July 2018 to apply for grants of £500 to £2,500 to support recreational trips or holidays within the UK between the 1st July and 31st August: 2018 for groups of children experiencing disadvantage or who have disabilities.

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.

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 2nd July 2018, decisions are made on a first come-first served basis until all the funds have been allocated.

  • All Saints Catholic Primary School which received a grant of £1,500 towards a two-night trip to Wales for a group of disadvantaged children from Merseyside.
