WHEN CAN I APPLY?
Applications are accepted all year around, unless announced otherwise. 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 will 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 and 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 everyone will not know the exact numbers attending the trip at the time of applying. We accept applications with estimated numbers. If your application is successful, we will make a pledge based on the estimation provided. However, prior to the trip taking place you must provide the confirmed number of children and young people by submitting a Confirm Attendees Form.
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.
WHAT HAPPENS IF MY APPLICATION ISN’T APPROVED?
Unsuccessful applicants will be informed by email. Your organisation must wait a year before reapplying.
HOW MANY GRANTS CAN WE APPLY FOR?
We can only accept submissions for one day trip/project idea at a time. You may apply for a grant in each of our funding streams (Day Trips, Events & Workshops and Legacy) once a year (1st November – 31st October). If in receipt of a grant, it must be closed before you can apply for another grant. You may only apply for one grant per funding stream per year (1st November – 31st October).
