Autumn in the City

Closed 21 Sep 2022

Opened 15 Sep 2022


Who Can Apply?

£40,000 has been allocated to community groups across the city to supplement the delivery of activities to children and young people during the October Holiday Period.

Community Groups are defined as groups or organisations that are based in or running from a community in the city.

What is the criteria?

This is an extension of the funding that was provided over the summer period; therefore, the same criteria apply:

The funding is aimed at children aged 5-14 from low income households and should be targeted at these groups:  

  • Children from lone parent families  
  • Children from ethnic minority families  
  • Children from families which have 1 or more person with a disability or additional support needs (adult or child) 
  • Children from families with a young mother (under 25)  
  • Children from families with a child under 1 year old  
  • Children from larger families (3+ children)  

In addition, we ask:

  • Where possible, sessions are day long or weeklong
  • that provision includes lunch or at least a snack

You will be responsible for managing bookings to your activities. Autumn in the City can share information on your project if you would like additional promotion.

There is a funding requirement to complete an evaluation at the end of your session(s).

How do you apply?

Please fill out the form below and return using the email address provided by Wednesday 21st September

The planning group will review the applications and let you know of the outcome by Thursday 28th September.

In addition to meeting the criteria, the planning group will also use the data we received from the summer programme to ensure we are meeting the demand for activities as well as having a varied and exciting programme for children and young people to benefit from.

When you are making your application, please consider possible costs associated with booking buildings etc. You are responsible for all elements of your programme including making venue bookings.
