Funding: The OWL Collaboration


The Ernest Cook Trust’s OWL Collaboration grant will cover costs for vulnerable and disadvantaged young people to attend a week’s residential visit to an Outdoor Week of Learning (OWL). OWL is a centre focusing on environmental and farm-based learning.

The OWL Collaboration welcomes applications from organisations in the UK, including:

  • Environmental and farm-based outdoor learning centres
  • Registered charities
  • Those who provide residential accommodation for school groups.

The fund has been developed as an immediate response to the experiences of young people during Covid-19, including mental health issues and the effects of the pandemic on social development.

Closing date for applications: 20 November 2020
