Expressions of Interest invited to run 2020 Filling the Holiday Gap scheme in Cornwall

Cornwall Council’s Wellbeing and Public Health Team is currently seeking applications for the 2020 Filling the Holiday Gap funding scheme. The aim of the scheme is to provide free enrichment activities and healthy food for disadvantaged children and families during the school summer holidays for children and young people aged 5 to 16.

The funding is focused on how projects can alleviate the financial pressure on household incomes by providing enrichment sessions that include an activity and a nutritious meal.

The scheme recognises that flexibility is important and innovation is encouraged; applications that involve partnership working are welcome as are projects that can engage the community or demonstrate wider benefits to individual or family wellbeing.

There is £175,000 in total available for the fund. There is no minimum amount that can be applied for by any one organisation, all applications must demonstrate value for money, be not for profit and higher value applications will incur a more detailed scrutiny process.

The Expression of Interest window runs from 16:30 on Thursday 27 February to 23:30 on Thursday 26 March 2020.
