The Ragdoll Foundation’s Open Grants scheme has been designed to support the cultural sector’s work with children and young people. All applications are expected to contribute to the Ragdoll Foundation’s primary purpose.
Preference will be given to innovative projects that share the same values of imagination and creativity as the Ragdoll Foundation. In particular, those projects which have a deep commitment to listening to children and allow the perceptions and feelings of children themselves to be better understood.
They are mainly interested in applications that involve children during their early years, but appropriate projects for older children (up to 18 years) will also be considered.
They welcome applications of up to £50k though the majority of grants made are likely to be in the region of £5k to £20k. Applications will be considered for both one-off short-term projects and for projects lasting up to three years.
