If you want to keep an eye on contract opportunities, Pro Contract is a good place to start. Following registration, which is free, you’ll be sent usually at least one email listing current contracting opportunities each day.
Here’s an example of a funding opportunity that’s currently being advertised:
Cornwall Council’s Wellbeing and Public Health Service is seeking applications for the 2020 “Filling the Holiday Gap” funding scheme 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.
