Grants

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.


Holiday food provision grants now available

Do you run a holiday activity club with food? Up to £5k available now.

The Children’s Health Fund is inviting organisations that want to provide good food as part of holiday learning, play and activity programmes to apply for funding between £1,000 and £5,000. We expect funding applications at the higher end of our scale (£5,000) will be for more strategic bids.

The number of applications accepted for this round of funding is limited to 150 to ensure every application receives sufficient attention. Please remember to click submit in the online system for your application to go forward for assessment.

The Board will meet in November to decide which applications will receive funding. Funding awards will be announced in December.
