HAGS Community Support Grant - Get Extra Funding for Your Playground

HAGS creates outdoor recreational spaces that you and your local community can be proud of. Under the HAGS Community Support Grant scheme, providing you meet the entry requirements stated below, we'll offer a financial contribution to subsidise your play area build cost, alleviating your budgetary spend and helping improve your local area.

We know that one of the quickest ways to have a positive impact on local communities, is to support organizations that are already doing great work and helping them achieve more.

In the battle against childhood obesity and increasingly high rates of poor mental health, local play provision can improve a child’s activity level and help tackle these and other issues.

We understand that working towards a financial goal when fundraising is the only route can be a challenge. We’re passionate about assisting you through the whole process from planning to careful design, assembly, installation and aftercare.

So, as part of our continuing dedication to supporting local communities, we’d like to offer you a little extra help.

How does the Community Support Grant work?

The HAGS Community Support Grant is a financial contribution to parish councils, town councils and other non-profit organisations. This financial contribution will help you develop your play areas, either by replacing tired, old equipment with new or by refurbishing existing items.

The size of the grant available is subject to the size of your project and is limited only by the total available funds from our corporate social responsibility budget.

The grant can be used to buy any HAGS playground, sport or fitness equipment, however, projects that are seeking to enhance inclusive provision will be considered more favourably as the more children there are involved in play, the more all of society benefits.
