Amazing Summer Fund

We are seeking local organisations to deliver free activities during the Summer School Holidays 2021 (Saturday 26 June - Wednesday 18 August).

Applications are invited from £500 up to £20k.

This funding is specifically to provide free activities for Children's and Young People in Dumfries and Galloway (we are looking to provide this in every Ward). The funding will provide children and young people in Primary 1 to Primary 7 and S1 to S6, with opportunities to meet with their friends and take part in free activities across Dumfries and Galloway.

Grant application amounts

We recommend that applications do not exceed £20,000. In exceptional circumstances, we will consider applications of up to £50,000 if they display a significant impact on children and young people, work with multiple partners, or cover more than one area in Dumfries and Galloway.

There is no match funding requirement for this fund.
