Funding for Children's Summer Playschemes

Date: 14th March 2011

The LankellyChase Foundation has announced that it is seeking applications from registered charities to support summer playschemes for children between the ages of 5 - 17 years. Preference is given to small local playschemes lasting 4 - 6 weeks, and groups planning special activities for youngsters who are disadvantaged.

In 2011 the Foundation will be supporting specific activities for children and young people living in refuges for families escaping domestic violence; or for young carers.

This year the Foundation will be making approximately 120 grants of around £500, to organisations in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Preference will be given to applications from organisations affiliated to a relevant nationally recognised body and adhering to national standards of practice. The closing date for applications is the 13th May 2011.
