Children’s Health Fund grants programme open.

The Children's Health Fund, administered by Sustain, has opened its next round of grants Water Works to improve access to free drinking water, particularly for children and young people.

The Children’s Health Fund is inviting organisations that want to improve access to free drinking water for the children and young people that they work with, or congregate in their spaces to apply for funding between £1,000 and £5,000.

The deadline for applications is midday on Friday 7th April 2017.

The independent advisory board will meet in May to decide which applications will receive funding. Funding awards will be announced shortly after the meeting.
