Arts-Based Learning Fund from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation (PHF) has grants available to support charities, community organisations, social enterprises and not-for-profit companies active in the arts that are working with schools, further education colleges and teachers to enhance the lives, development and achievements of children and young people.
Two types of grant are available to support work at different stages of development.
The Arts-based Learning ‘explore and test’ grants provide funding for up to two years to help test or evaluate new approaches.
There are no deadlines and you may apply at any time. The aim is to let applicants know the decision within 3 months of the date the application was submitted
The Arts-based Learning ‘more and better’ grants provide longer, larger grants to help increase the impact and effectiveness of work which has already shown promise or positive impact.
There are no deadlines but you should apply for a ‘More and Better’ grant at least 6 months before you plan to start the work you would like to be funded.
The Foundation welcome a range of applications and are particularly interested in funding work for the benefit of primary-age children (this could include, for example, projects involving a secondary and local primary schools) and work taking place in areas of social and economic deprivation outside of London.
