Summer Activity Grants


As things are we won't be able to bring you our usual Summer Holiday Programme which will not be a suprise to you, but we are very excited to be able to offer you some options through the Summer holidays!

We are planning to have a few days out which will be advertised on a week by week basis, please keep an eye on our social media and your emails for these coming out.  Things are still a bit uncertain so we will keep you informed if anything changes and we will need to adapt to any guidelines or restrictions that there might be.

We have secured funding from Dumfries and Galloway Council to offer individual grants to PIN families.

We understand that not everyone will be able to or feel comfortable coming to an activity day, so we are offering families the opportunity to apply to us for funding towards a purchase that will benefit their family. Funding is limited so we can only accept 1 application per family.

To be able to apply to PIN for this grant you must;

  • A current member of Parents Inclusion Network
  • Live in Dumfries and Galloway
  • The money is intended for school aged children up to age 18


What Can be Funded?

We understand that during these times families cannot access a traditional type of break. This fund allows you to apply for a small one-off grant. For example;

  • Art and Craft equipment
  • Garden games/equipment
  • Day out when and where you feel comfortable going.

These are just examples, if you have a particular item you would like to apply for please do so. Its a good idea to have something in mind that you would like to spend the money on before you apply.


What happens when I apply?

  • Once you submit your application it will be considered by the PIN team and we will get back to you with a decision.
  • If successful, we will pay the funds into your nominated bank account
  • You must provide us with receipts for your purchase
