SF&G are delighted that we are once again partnering with the Hilden Charitable Fund to award Children’s Summer Activity Grants to our members, helping to get children learning and playing in nature this summer.
In 2021 we supported 18 groups with grants of £1,500 each. This provided around 200 sessions over the summer for more than 700 children and their families, with a huge range of activities taking place including bug hunting, seed planting, orienteering, bush-crafts, and outdoor cooking sessions.
This year we will be distributing £34,000 in grants of up to £1,500 each to support activities that will engage children and young people with nature in July and August 2022.
You can apply for up to £1,500 to deliver activities for children and young people aged 5 – 18 that:
Take place in July and/or August 2022
Support them to play, learn and have fun outdoors
Connect them with nature
We are particularly interested in receiving applications that demonstrate how you will reach children and young people who are from disadvantaged backgrounds, or who have disabilities.
Your activities can be solely funded by this grant, or take place as part of a larger scheme or initiative.
Successful applicants will be notified by Friday 6th June, and receive 50% of their grant on return of a signed grant acceptance letter. The remaining 50% will be released on submission of a grant report by 23rd September 2022.
Please note: as part of your application, you will be asked to submit a copy of your most recent accounts, your safeguarding policy and your public liability insurance certificate. We are unable to assess applications submitted without these supporting documents.
Application Deadline: Midday, Monday 30th May 2022
