Funding opportunities


Here are some funding opportunities currently open for applications.

Children’s health fund

The Children’s Health Fund recognises that no child should go hungry during the holidays. Therefore, they are offering a grant of between £1,000 and £5,000 for organisations that want to provide food as part of holiday learning, play and activity programmes.

To apply you must be a not-for-profit organisation.

Closing date for applications: 5pm 6 October 2017.

Local School Nature Grants Scheme

Learning through Landscapes is offering a Local School Nature Grants Programme which is funded by players of the People’s Postcode Lottery.

Schools in England, Scotland and Wales can apply for up to £500 worth of outdoors resources, and a two-hour training session. The scheme is not providing cash grants.

The successful candidate must have learners over the age of five and are passionate about making environmental improvements for the benefit of their pupils. There are 300 grants available.

Closing date for applications: 30 September 2017.
