OWL Collaboration grants to help resilience of outdoor learning centres during COVID-19

OWL will provide an opportunity for vulnerable and disadvantaged young people to experience the recognised benefits of an Outdoor Week of Learning (OWL).

The OWL Collaboration has been devised as an immediate response to the experiences of young people during Covid-19, including mental health issues, domestic abuse, and the effect of the pandemic on their social development, achievement and job prospects.

This funding-plus programme brings together:

  • Funders;
  • Schools (primary, secondary and special);
  • Outdoor Learning Centres (environmental/farm-based).

The grant is for advance payment to cover costs per pupil for a week’s residential visit. The initial grant payment will be for one year, but this is a four year project and you will be offered the opportunity for multi-year funding providing that you have fulfilled the project’s reporting requirements.

In addition, some centres will be funded to provide training weekends for accompanying teachers prior to the school’s visit.

Deadline: 20 November 2020.
