Activities Unlimited services investment grants and Young Carers and Sibling Grant 2021/22

We are now inviting new applications for the funding of Short Break and Young Carers/Siblings activities for the 2021/22 financial year.

The grants application form and guidance have been reviewed and amended, so please ensure you read the guidance notes carefully before completing the application form. These guidance notes refer specifically to the Short Break application form but can be applied also to Young Carers and Siblings application form.

To allow sufficient time to fully consider all applications we have set a submission deadline midnight of Friday 6th November 2020. This will enable the panel to consider the merits of each application in accordance with the directorate’s commissioning intentions, and the needs and wishes of the families this funding will support. Applications received after midnight of Friday 6th November 2020 will not be considered.

Your application will be reviewed by a multidisciplinary panel, consisting of key stakeholders including parents/carers and Suffolk County Council representatives. Please see the guidance notes for more information. Subsequent funding decisions will take into account factors such as prior customer uptake, unit pricing, geographical location and the work we have undertaken to understand the needs, wants and wishes of disabled children, young people and their parents/carers.

Please bear in mind that we will be looking to achieve best value for our grant investment in order to maintain equity of short break provision across the county and therefore meet the wide ranging of needs of children and young people with SEND in Suffolk.


We will also be sending the updated Safeguarding self-assessment form for completion ASAP.  

If you have any questions regarding the application process, please contact a member of the Activities Unlimited team on 01473 260026 or email
