sv-icon-copy-1The Hilden Charitable Fund was established in 1963 by Joan and Tony Rampton. It is a grant making foundation registered with the UK Charity Commission. The Hilden Charitable Fund awards grants to projects both in the UK and in developing countries. The aim of the fund is to address disadvantages, notably by supporting causes which are less likely to raise funds from public subscriptions. Both the UK and overseas fund policy is directed largely at supporting work at community level.

The Fund has allocated a small budget to help community groups run summer play schemes for disadvantaged communities.  Some priority will be given to projects which show they are inclusive of children from refugee families, and show BME involvement.

Trustees look to fund:
* Projects for children aged 5 to 18 years
* Locally based schemes lasting from 2 to 6 weeks
* Schemes with strong volunteer support
Applications are accepted from voluntary agencies with an income of less than £150,000.
Trustees will accept applications from across the UK.

Trustees WILL NOT SUPPORT:
* Play schemes with a budget of over £12,000
* Club or family holidays
* Day care costs
* Agencies with an income of over £150,000.

What they need from applicants:
The completed application form sent to us by post with:
*A brief plan of action/time table for the scheme
* A copy of the applicant’s most recent annual report and accounts which must include details of their management committee.

Applications must be received by Wednesday May 24th 2017
