Grant giving charity Cash for Kids is working in partnership with Free Radio, Gem Radio, Signal 1 and Greatest Hits Radio to offer grants of up to £3,000 to families, community groups or registered charities, in the Midlands, which support children and young people (up to and including 18-year-olds) who are affected by poverty, illness, neglect or who have additional needs.
Cash for Kids believes that every child should be able to achieve their potential and live life to the full. Grants can be used for a variety of purposes including:
- The purchase of specialist equipment
- The delivery of activities for children in areas of deprivation
- Specialist service provision
- Speech, language or music therapy
- Mental health
- Trauma and bereavement counselling
- Short UK-based respite breaks
Grant applications can only be made to support children living in the Midlands, or registered charities that help children from the Midlands.
Favourable consideration will be given to projects which directly benefit a large number of children and/or have a positive impact on the quality of their lives. Successful schemes will be of good quality with careful consideration being given to the safety and wellbeing of children.
Grant applications for individual families will require supporting information, as indicated on the online application form. Applications for organisations must be accompanied by their most recently audited annual accounts.
