To be eligible applicants can be either a voluntary or community organisation (including registered charities/companies), school, health body (e.g. Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), NHS Hospital Trust, Foundation Trust), Parish/Town Council, local authority or social housing provider. This list is not exhaustive and there will be many other types of organisations that will be funded.
All types of projects can be funded, as long as they support local children and young people. This could include but is not exhausted to:

- Vulnerable at risk children – the pandemic has impacted vulnerable children with challenging home and family circumstances.
The scheme can fund 100% of your project costs so you do not have to have any match funding. However, if you secured additional funding, there is no limit to what this amount can be and any funding awarded by Bags of Help can form part of your wider project costs.
Your project can be a stand-alone project or discrete, self-contained part of a larger scheme or part of a phased project. You will need to complete your project within twelve months of receipt of the grant.
