What can I apply for?

Grants can be used in lots of different ways, for example a break away for you and your family or trying out a new activity, like climbing or horse riding.

Some of the grants we’ve given before include:

  • Camping equipment
  • Outings to theme parks
  • Theatre break
  • Horse riding
  • Football kit and goals
  • Getting active (gym membership)
  • Holiday camp breaks

Grants are usually between £200-£400 in value.

As with lots of grants, there are some things we are not able to fund. Take a Break grants cannot be used for the following purposes:

  • Purchase of vehicles including caravans
  • Funds for an organisation
  • Replacing existing funding
  • Retrospective grants, where an item or break has already been purchased
  • IT equipment including laptops/tablets

All grants are discretionary and subject to available funding.


If you are not sure the grant item or request meets these requirements, please get in touch with a member of the Take a Break team who will be happy to help.
