The Children’s Health Fund makes thematic grants twice a year focussed on children’s health and wellbeing and food education.

Grants are awarded following successful completion of a grant application process. All grants are awarded by our independent advisory board.

We do not accept unsolicited applications for funding. Organisations interested in applying for funding should follow the application process under the thematic round, if applicable.

The Board reserves the right from time to time to give out strategic grants.

The next funding round aimed at projects improving access to drinking water for children in public spaces, will reopen in March. Sign up to our newsletter to receive the funding alert.
