Grants for access to tap water

In the past month, the Children’s Health Fund has opened the process to obtain grants to promote or provide access to tap water for children in public spaces. Access to water in public places means that children can quench their thirst for free, and will hopefully drink fewer sugar sweetened beverages.

Protecting public health is the reason that water companies were first established and they provide essential services to treat and deliver safe drinking water.

The Children’s Health Fund is offering grant fundings between £500 to £5,000 for projects that have innovative ideas aiding the promotion of access to drinking water in public spaces that children and young people gather in to learn, play or congregate.

The deadline for completed applications is midday on Friday 1st April 2016.

More information on the grants and application process is available at the Children’s Health Fund website.
