Groups in Need Grant (GING)

NEW - Groups In Need Grant

The new PATA Groups In Need Grant (GING) is now open to all PATA member settings with charitable status. We will award grants to support a range of issues via three distinct programmes. Each grant programme addresses different issues, so please have a look, and decide which programme best suits your groups funding needs as you can only apply through one programme.

About Groups In Need Grants

At PATA we acknowledge that the early years childcare sector is underfunded. The purpose of the GING is to support our members who operate within these constraints and where margins are tight, and budgets don’t allow for additional costs.

Please read all guidelines fully as incomplete applications will not be accepted and will be rejected.

Who can apply?

PATA member settings who hold charitable status are eligible to apply (but not in the first year of membership). You must hold PATA membership from the application date to the finish date of your grant. There are no limits to the size of member organisation which may apply for the GING. However, if an applicant organisation is holding unrestricted reserves that could cover more than 12 months of its annual expenditure, the application will be considered a lower priority for funding.

Deadline for application submissions

There is a rolling deadline for all applications with a process time of up to 4 weeks from receipt of a complete and correct application. Incomplete or incorrect applications will be rejected and returned for re-submission.

Read the full guidance notes and criteria here, which include the link to submit an application.
