Organisations that are currently in receipt of a grant from John Lyon’s Charity for core services are also eligible to apply to this Fund as long as funds from the Charity are not already being used for holiday activities. You may apply for this SHAF round, even if you have had three consecutive SHAF grants.If you have never received funding from John Lyon’s Charity before, you are still welcome to apply for funding under the SHAF.

You cannot currently apply if you received a SHAF grant during the summer.

What can I apply for?

You can apply to the School Holiday Activity Fund for a variety of activities, but this must be in line with the National Youth Agency (NYA) guidelines and the Readiness Level. We are currently in Red Readiness Level. 

Funding will be provided for activities that are additional to current delivery such as:

Sessional staffing costs

Transport for children with special needs and/or disabilities only

Additional sessions

Other direct project costs such as equipment (not IT equipment)

Food, within the context of activity taking place.
