Window for applications reopened.

Birmingham City Council has received grant funding from the Department for Education to coordinate a large-scale holiday activity programme with the inclusion of food for children and young people across the city this summer and over the Christmas period.

We are looking for a number of community and voluntary organisations to help us deliver this ambitious programme, which will provide enriching and exciting holiday activities for children and young people.

We are looking for organisations who can deliver against the 3 core programme outcomes with the expectation of this being for 4 hours per day, 4 days per week for 4 weeks, although there may be some flexibility (additional information is detailed within the application form)

  • Food
  • Physical Activity
  • Enrichment

We appreciate that a number of community organisations will be unable to purchase and prepare food for the programme. We have a central food supply chain in place to support where this is the case (further details within the application form below).

BVSC will manage the grants programme for voluntary, community and social enterprise sectors.

The application forms and grant guidance can be downloaded below and completed applications should be submitted to BVSC electronically to [email protected]  

Due to the amount of grant funding available exceeding the level of applications received by the deadline of Monday 7th June, Birmingham City Council have agreed for the application window to be reopened to encourage further applications from the VCFSE sector.

Successful applicants, who submitted their applications by Monday 7th June, will be informed of the decision by 18th June 2021.
