Funding Update - Cash for Kids
On the run up to Christmas, groups working with young people and children will usually apply to Cash for Kids. Their website says:
“We are actively working to raise funds for our next grant round. As soon as we are in a position to distribute more grants we will provide access to our online application forms.
We are prioritising applications to support families who are living in or on the brink of poverty due to coronavirus. Grants will be for a maximum of £35 per child to help families with children cover basic essentials such as food and heating and applications must be made through a recognised referral source such as social workers, health professionals, teachers and grass roots community organisations.”
