Not for profit organisations in the arts and cultural sector can apply for grants of up to £50,000 for projects that work with children and young people up to the age of 18 using the arts and creative media.

Preference will be given to innovative projects which have a deep commitment to listening to children and allow the perceptions and feelings of children themselves to be better understood. Organisations can apply for both one-off short-term projects and for projects lasting up to three years. The funding is being made available through the Ragdoll Foundation’s Open Grant Scheme.

Previous projects supported include;

  • Dance Devon, who received a grant of £20,550 to develop and deliver ‘All Aboard’, a new inclusive dance project for very young disabled and non-disabled children and their families
  • West Yorkshire Playhouse which received a grant of £26,028 to develop and deliver a new arts-based creative play project with around 30 babies, toddlers and pre-school children whose mothers attend the Playhouse’s weekly Asmarina Voices refugee women’s singing group.

Applications can be submitted at any time.
