Our Specialist Projects


Apples & Pears gives children under 12 and their families the opportunity to discover inspiring educational, social and cultural activities through awarding grants to organisations who can run or host our group trips programme.

Our Specialist Projects

If you've made it this far, you're potentially interested in supporting our work with specialist charities and projects. We seek out specialist charities and groups who can run trips for hard to reach families or those with specific needs. In 2018, we launched our first ever project for Looked After Children in partnership with Tower Hamlets Virtual School along with funding a programme for children with speech, language and communication needs with Half Moon Theatre. In 2018/19, we’ll be adding to these with our first project for families in temporary housing.

  • As always, 100% of raised funds go to projects and not internal operational costs (these are covered privately). 

  • Our grants fund group tailored trips based on the specific needs of the group we are working with. 

  • Our grants cover transport costs, entry fees and learning materials that support the trips (e.g. activity workbooks, museum headsets). 

We'll be looking to award around £4,000 in grants to specialist projects in 2018/2019 and would love you support to help us achieve this goal!
