The Youth Hostel Association’s (YHA’s) Educational Breaks Programme has re-opened for applications. Grants of up to 50% of the costs of taking up to 10 students aged between 8 and 18 on an educational break are available. Members of the group will be eligible for pupil premium and may face additional social challenges. YHA is particularly keen to support groups of young people who have not undertaken a residential activity previously.
Schools, registered charities, community and voluntary organisations can apply annually for an advertises educational break on the behalf of any individual or group of young people who meet the criteria. Priority will be given to groups that include children who are experiencing exceptionally difficult circumstances.
The closing date for applications is the 29th June 2018
