The Hilden Charitable Fund’s Summer Play Scheme is now open for applications. The Fund supports community groups and voluntary agencies with an income of less than £150,000 that run summer play schemes for children between the ages of 5 and 18 in disadvantaged communities.
Supported schemes should be:
- For children aged 5 to 18 years
- Locally based and lasting between two and six weeks
- Have strong volunteer support.
Some priority will be given to projects which show that they are inclusive of children from refugee families and have BME involvement. Schemes supported will have a budget of under £12,000.
The average grant awarded in 2018 was £1,071. A total of 21 schemes were supported representing £22,500 in total.
The closing date for applications is Tuesday June 4th 2019
