Funding: The Hilden Charitable Fund – Summer Play Schemes

The Fund has allocated a small budget to help community groups run summer play schemes for disadvantaged communities.  Some priority will be given to projects which show they are inclusive of children from refugee families, and show BME involvement.

Trustees look to fund:

Applications are accepted from voluntary agencies with an income of less than £150,000.

Trustees will accept applications from across the UK.


* Play schemes with a budget of over £12,000

* Club or family holidays

* Day care costs

* Agencies with an income of over £150,000.

*A brief plan of action/time table for the scheme
