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 2nd July 2021.
