Bradford Healthy Holidays Grants
We are seeking to fund projects that address Holiday Hunger in Bradford through promoting Healthy Holiday activities with a food component for school-aged young people. This Fund will provide grants of up to £6,000 to support locally-based community activities across Bradford. Projects should be delivered in the most deprived areas of the city and should prioritise children who are eligible for free school meal. We are keen to receive applications from a diverse range of organisations. We will have a minimum £250,000 to distribute in this round and are engaged in further fundraising.
We know that almost 40,000 children live in poverty in Bradford; over 18% of secondary school pupils in Bradford are eligible for free school meals; parents skip a meal so that their children can eat during the school holidays. We know that returning to school in poor physical and mental condition can have a detrimental impact on children’s mental and physical wellbeing, as well as their educational attainment.
Give Bradford is managed by Leeds If you have any queries about the programme, or would like advice as to whether or not your project might be eligible, please contact Leeds Community Foundation on 0113 242 2426 or email email@example.com
