WHEN CAN I APPLY?
Applications are accepted all year around, but please take into consideration that we will only approve one grant per applicant per year and you can only have one application per grant category at any one time.
HOW MUCH DO YOU FUND?
Successful applications would be awarded up to £30 per child/young person with a disability attending the day trip. In exceptional circumstances and where budgets permit, we will consider funding for siblings aged 5-16 without a condition.
CAN I TAKE MY FAMILY ON A DAY TRIP?
Unfortunately we only accept applications for groups of a minimum of eight children & young people with disabilities in attendance. If you are an individual family, then please contact a support group, SEND school or charity that may be able to organize a group day trip on your behalf that you could attend.
DO YOU FUND HOLIDAYS OR REOCCURRING TRIPS?
Our day trip grant is only for days out that occur on a single day within the UK. If you have a reoccurring activity, workshops or event occurring for a longer period please refer to our events & workshops grant.
WHAT IF I DON’T KNOW THE EXACT NUMBER OF CHILDREN THAT WILL BE ABLE TO ATTEND OUR DAY TRIP?
We understand that as you have to apply at least 2 weeks in advance of the date of your proposed day trip not everyone will know the exact numbers in attendance. We will accept applications with an estimated amount of young people listed. We can consider the application on those terms, and agree a pledge based on the exact numbers that attend on the day. If that is the case you will have to provide us full details of your attendees at the first available opportunity and before the trip takes place.
IF OUR APPLICATION IS APPROVED, WHEN DO WE GET FUNDS?
Grants will be paid retrospectively. If a grant is awarded, you must submit monitoring information within eight weeks of the day trip taking place. Only once we have received the monitoring information will be pay the agreed grant.
