Kensington and Chelsea Council are inviting applications for two grant funds: Stay and Play Provision, and Family and Parenting Support.
1. Stay and Play Grant Funding:
Stay and play provision is an essential part of the wider offer for under-fives in the borough. Stay and plays contribute to the development, health and wellbeing of under-fives and support their school readiness. Successful applicants will deliver high-quality play provision within a safe, informative and stimulating environment which is welcoming and supportive to all. Delivery of stay and play sessions will commence from 1 April 2024. Funding will be for five years, with the option to extend for up to a further two years. The application window will close at 5.00pm on Friday 3 November.

Specifically, the Council is inviting applications to deliver the following types of support:

These interventions will form a key part of the Council’s family and parenting support offer. Evidence suggests that when parents receive timely, responsive parenting support, outcomes for children improve. Delivery of the family and parenting support will commence from 1 April 2024. Funding will be for five years, with the option to extend for up to a further two years. The application window will close at 5.00pm on Friday 3 November.
