The priority area of A Good Childhood covers eight actions across interconnected areas of work. This funding strand is open to any of the eight but will prioritise proposals with a focus on: - Relationships - Moving on - Youth Justice Your proposal needs to reflect and consider what has to happen within your organisation, collaboration or local area to support a Good Childhood.

Funding for Projects that Use the Arts and Media to Address the Concerns of Children (UK)
Not-for-profit organisations in the UK that are working with children and young people using the arts and creative media can apply for funding through the Ragdoll Foundation's grants programmes. Funding of up to £1,500 is available through the small grants programme for projects lasting up to six months and £50,000 through the large grants programme for projects lasting up to three years. Preference will be given to those projects which have a deep commitment to listening to children and allow the perceptions and feelings of children themselves to be better understood. The Foundation is mainly interested in applications that involve children during their early years, but appropriate projects for older children (up to 18 years) will also be considered. Applications to the large grants programme are accepted on a rolling basis. The next closing date for the small grants programme is the 7 January 2022
Trustees' Week 2021
More Trustees Week thank yous! Really great to share this big thank you from all the team at FMA UK. Great to read of trustees who are involved at every part of an organisation.
We were really moved by this recent feedback from ongoing work with Pachedu and wanted to share it as part of Trustees Week. Being a trustee is about development, both for you and the organisation.
