Reconnect County Grant
We're trying to reconnect children and young people with things they have missed during the COVID-19 pandemic through the Reconnect: Kent Children and Young People Programme.
Young people have told us that they want to:
- return to doing fun activities with friends and family
- enjoy new experiences such as festivals and camping
- start their hobbies again
- take part in clubs
- enjoy the outdoors by taking part in activities such as climbing and kayaking.
We'll be issuing grants to fund activities between now and August 2022 that will support the programme's priorities.
We want to fund additional activities that will help children and young people reconnect to their pre-pandemic lives.
The activities need to be inclusive and provide equal access to all children and young people between now and the end of August 2022.
Priorities for this round of funding
Activities funded by this programme will need to meet at least one of the following priorities:
|Health and happiness|
|Sport, activities and the outdoors|
|Friends, family and community|
You can apply for a Reconnect County Grant if your project or activity:
- meets at least one of the Reconnect priorities
- will be delivered in at least 3 Kent districts
- will be delivered before the end of August 2022.
You can apply for up to £50,000 per project and you can submit up to 4 applications.
No organisation will be awarded more than 3 grants, which together will amount to no more than £100,000.
Applications closed on 9 January 2022.
