legacy grant

Our legacy grant works in a different way to the others. We usually support organisations that we have an existing relationship with, however we are always open to creating new partnerships, especially if you have an innovative project which will improve the quality of young lives and will have a social impact.

ABOUT THIS GRANT

We provide grants to support projects that address issues and challenges faced by children and young people with disabilities and/or life-limiting conditions and their families. This could be a one-off event or a series of events for different groups of children, or a project that leaves a significant legacy of change and inclusion.

Your project should provide positive activities for children and young people with disabilities, help develop their skills, whilst also creating a lasting impact. Each project will be considered on its own merit.

    HOW LIKELY WILL IT BE FOR MY APPLICATION TO BE SUCCESSFUL?

    HOW MANY PROJECTS WILL YOU FUND EACH YEAR?

    We have a limited amount of funding available but will aim to allocate it across the most deserving projects to help create maximum impact and value. Each year the applications will be considered on their own merits so there won’t be a set number of projects we aim to support. We are more interested in the projects aims and whether it will be leaving a legacy of change and inclusion.

    IS IT IMPORTANT HOW MANY CHILDREN & YOUNG PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES WILL BENEFIT?

    Projects that benefit larger numbers of children and young people may appear as better value for money, however, we are interested in high value experiences. Each grant will be reviewed by a panel and considered on its own merit.

    WHEN WILL I HEAR IF WE WERE SUCCESSFUL?

    If your expression of interest is shortlisted, you will be asked to complete an application form. We will aim to let you know our decision as quickly as possible but advise it may take 4-6 weeks.

    If a grant is awarded, it will be paid in instalments. The process of payment 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. You may be visited by a member of the Daytrippers team.

    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.

case studies

Changing the world one tic at a time

Changing the world one tic at a time

We have grown to admire TourettesHero for their creativity and passion for inclusion. Starting out as a project with one single mission – “To change the world one tic at a time” – by celebrating the humour & creativity of Tourettes. In their own words, it’s not about mocking or commiserating – it’s about reclaiming the most frequently misunderstood syndrome on the planet.

We have proudly supported both their development and a series of unique events for young people with Tourettes and their families, including a secret Superhero meet up, and even a silent disco in the Tate Britain. Despite how fun that all sounds, the reason why we continue to support TourettesHero is down to the ongoing impact of all their hard work.

Diggin’ the Gallery with Tate Britain

Diggin’ the Gallery with Tate Britain

Going to an Art Gallery can be an intimidating task for a young person with a disability, and the Tate wanted to change that with our help. Partnering with them and a talented artist Ben Connors, we developed three large scale events which changed the way the gallery was explored, understood and engaged with by young people.

Taking the lead from our Young Ambassador Ethan, we created a map of the gallery through Ethan’s experience, and challenged everyone to interact with the gallery and its art work without the normal rules and boundaries. We danced in the galleries, performed poetry, created soundscapes and art work which responded to the space and its existing collection of art.

Special Children’s Day at ZSL London Zoo

Special Children’s Day at ZSL London Zoo

Partnering with Zoological Society of London on their annual Special Children’s Day. Over eleven years more than 11,000 young people with disabilities have accessed this unique event through Daytrippers support. This event takes place over one weekend per year and offers a truly inclusive experience of this family favourite venue.

With additional facilities, chill out zones, and BSL interpreters the zoo opens up its doors in a way that isn’t normally available. Daytrippers in addition has developed and run private touch tours available for young people with visual impairments giving them a real hands on experience with the animals.
