Teesdale Area Action Partnership (TAP)

TAP has money for grants.   If you are a charity or part of a charitable organisation (e.g. scouts; village hall) or not for profit organisation you can apply via Adam White the TAP coordinator.

Money is usually available for youth activities during half terms.

If you are putting on an activity for young people in the Easter holidays there is money to provide food. It has to be a new activity, long running Mum’s & Toddlers groups do not count.
