Schools and community groups looking to offer breaks for disadvantaged young people and families can apply for support for a residential stay in England and Wales.

The funding, which is made available through the Youth Hostel Association’s Breaks Programme, can be used towards payment for a school residential trip for any individual or group of young people who are experiencing disadvantage including homelessness, disability, long-term illness, bereavement, and other circumstances that limit children’s opportunities.

Applications are currently being accepted from school groups in the alternative provision sector of education, along with special schools that are interested in taking pupils on a residential break from primary school to secondary school. The Association is also taking enquiries from home education networks.

Deadline: No application deadline is given.
