Henry Smith Charity - Holiday Grants

The Holiday Grants programme provides grants for recreational trips for groups of children aged 13 and under in the UK who are disabled or disadvantaged. This year, given the extraordinary impact of Covid-19, we have made some temporary changes to our guidelines to provide more flexibility on the types of trip we can support.

About Henry Smith Charity - Holiday Grants

The aim is to help maximise the likelihood of trips going ahead so children, many of whom have been under lockdown for much of the last year, can get out and have some fun!

Key grant details:

  • Grant size - £500 - £2,500
  • Length - One-off short grants
  • Decision timescale - 6 weeks
  • Deadlines - Submission dates vary depending when trips or holidays take place

Qualifying criteria:

Please only apply for this grant if you meet the following criteria:

  • Location of work - UK only, with priority to the 20% most deprived areas
  • Funding covers - Recreational day trips
  • Organisation type - Schools, small charities and not-for-profit organisations

You can ask the charity to help towards a day trip or multiple day trips where larger numbers of children are involved or Covid-19 safety makes it necessary. These can be to the countryside or a city, but must be within the UK. Examples include:

  • Theme parks
  • Trips to adventure activity centres
  • The seaside
  • Cultural centres such as museums, theatre performances or a sporting event

If you are unsure, please contact the charity to see if your planned trip is suitable as they are temporarily widening their guidelines. For a fuller explanation of what can and cannot be funded, please download the full guidelines.

They prioritise applications that will benefit disadvantaged or disabled children living in the most deprived areas of the UK. For Holiday Grants this means areas that fall within the bottom 20% according to the National Indices of Deprivation*.
