Funding Cycle: 15 January, 15 April, 15 July, 15 October

Disadvantages experienced by children and young people include: Illness, distress, abuse or neglect; Any kind of disability; Behavioural or psychological difficulties; Living in poverty or situations of deprivation
The application should focus on the children your project will work with and the differences that your project will make for them. You should clearly be able to demonstrate how your project will change the lives of the children involved for the better. Where possible it should take into account their views and involve them in decisions that affect them.
We also only award one grant to an organisation at any time. The only exception to this is if you are a UK-wide organisation operating in more than one nation (England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland). In this case you are eligible to submit one application per nation.
Funding can be awarded for between one and three years, depending on the nature of the request. Grants can only be made for one year at a time for holidays
