PATA Covid Response Fund

Our PATA Covid Response Fund gave out small grants to many settings to support them with resources to make the recovery from Covid that bit easier.  Resources included outdoor play equipment, additional fencing, roof coverings for outdoor areas, storage and lots of portable sinks!  We will be releasing details of our Groups in Need Grants scheme shortly. 

Phone lines

Our PATA phone lines are open for you to call for advice or support.   

Phone lines open: Monday - Friday 09.30 - 15.30

As always we will endeavour to reply as quickly as possible but we are a small team.  If we don't pick up straight away leave a message and we will response as soon as possible.  You can also email us on 

Coronovirus Emergency Response Funding

Since the start of the pandemic PATA has seen every part of our organisation dedicate itself to support services for our members, adapting and revising our own working practice to best guide our members through the significant challenges posed. We have helped members navigate Government advice and guidance for the education sector throughout the pandemic and given detailed support for groups bearing the practicalities of the fast evolving situation. 

We are delighted to have been awarded funding from Gloucestershire Community Foundation that will help us stay sustainable, adaptable and enable us to continue to develop vital training opportunities that support our members throughout this challenging time.

Thank you to Gloucestershire Community Foundation for these vital funds that will make a big impact.
