Small Grants, Big Difference

Kids jumping over muddy fields

The Small Grants, Big Difference fund helps early years providers offer the best possible support to children and families. 

Early years settings can apply for one off grants up to the value of £2,000 to enhance the learning of children and families in their care. Each application will be assessed on an individual basis, however, priority will be given to applications from disadvantaged areas, supporting disabled children and those showing innovative ways of extending learning.  Awards can support an individual child (not 1:1 funding), an activity for a group of children or the setting as a whole. 

For more information on the types of activities we fund, read our case studies.
