WHEN CAN I APPLY?
Applications are accepted all year round, 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.
WHAT DO YOU FUND?
Our Events & Workshops grant is open to all projects that do not traditionally fit within the guidelines of our day trip application. We welcome grants for events, residentials and projects for children and young people aged 5-25 who have disabilities and life-limiting conditions in the UK. If you have an idea for a project but aren’t sure whether it would be considered, please feel free to contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss with us before you apply.
IS IT IMPORTANT HOW MANY CHILDREN & YOUNG PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES WILL BENEFIT?
We do recognize that projects that benefit larger numbers of children & young people may appear as better value for money, but then there are other projects that provide a more valuable experience so each grant will be reviewed by a panel and considered on its own merit.
WHEN WILL I HEAR IF WE WERE SUCCESSFUL?
After the application has been submitted we will be in touch if we have any questions whilst we process it. Your application will then be reviewed by a Daytrippers panel. You will be notified of our decision within 4 weeks of submitting.
IF WE WERE SUCCESSFUL HOW WOULD WE GET THE FUNDING?
If a grant is awarded, you must submit monitoring information by the deadline provided. The process of how the grant will be paid (in advance or retrospectively) will be reviewed on a grant by grant basis. Payment will be made by instalments and monitoring information will need to be submitted to support each instalment.
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 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 (31st October – 30th 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 (31st October – 30th October).
