WHEN CAN I APPLY?
Applications are accepted all year around, unless announced otherwise. Please take into consideration that we will only approve one Day Trip grant per applicant per year. Organisations may only apply for funding within a specific grant category at any one time, unless at the request of Daytrippers Foundation.
HOW MUCH DO YOU FUND?
We will award up to £30 per child/young person with a disability.
WE REQUIRE FUNDING FOR CHILDREN WITH AND WITHOUT DISABILITIES. CAN YOU HELP?
Children and young people with disabilities and/or life-limiting conditions and their key carers are considered a priority. Further funding for siblings and other group members will be considered where exceptional circumstances are applicable.
CAN FAMILIES APPLY FOR A GRANT?
Unfortunately, we do not accept applications from families or individuals. We do, however, accept grant requests from SEN schools, hospices, charities and not-for-profit organisations.
DO YOU FUND HOLIDAYS OR REOCCURRING TRIPS?
No, we do not fund residentials, respite breaks or holidays. We do fund reoccurring activities, workshops and events through our Events & Workshops grant offer.
WHO ORGANISES THE DAY TRIP?
The applying organisation decides the destination and organises the trip.
WHAT IF I DON’T KNOW THE EXACT NUMBER OF ATTENDEES?
We understand that everyone may not know the exact number of people attending the trip at the time of applying. We accept application forms with estimated numbers and if successful, we will pledge funding based on the estimation. Prior to the trip taking place, grantees are required to provide information about the attendees by submitting a Confirm Attendees Form.
WHEN DO YOU RECIEVE THE GRANT?
Grants are paid retrospectively. Grantees are asked to submit monitoring information within eight weeks after the day trip. We then pay the grant via bank transfer.
WHAT HAPPENS IF MY APPLICATION IS UNSUCCESSFUL?
Unsuccessful applicants will be informed by email. The applicant will be eligible to reapply the following funding year which recommences from 1st November.
HOW MANY GRANTS CAN I APPLY FOR?
An organisation may apply for one Day Trip grant per funding year (1st November to 31st October). They may also apply for an Events & Workshops and Legacy grant, however, not all at the same time. A grant must be completed before another can be applied for.
