The London Community Foundation has announced that organisations directly supporting children and young people affected by the Grenfell Tower fire can apply for grants of up to £15,000 per year for up to three years.
Through this fund, the London Community Foundation want to provide funding for organisations who can provide the following outcomes for the children and young people being supported:
• Children and young people have improved wellbeing
• Children and young people are engaged, empowered and have a role in society
• Young people are ‘work ready’ and/or employed
In awarding grants, the London Community Foundation will take the following into account:
- Organisations directly supporting children and young people affected by the Grenfell Tower fire will be prioritised for funding. Projects indirectly supporting children and young people (e.g. through supporting parents and carers) may be considered. No more than 20% of organisations funded in this Round will be where children and young people are indirectly supported.
- Priority will be given to organisations who are locally based in North Kensington. Up to a maximum of 20% of overall Grenfell Children and Young People’s Fund money can be made available for organisations who are based outside of The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. All organisations who are not based in The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea will have to demonstrate how they work in partnership with local organisation(s).
- There is no maximum or minimum organisation turnover size. Smaller organisations (under £500,000 income) will be prioritised. A maximum of 20% of organisations funded will have an income of over £500,000.
- Applications from organisations currently in receipt of funding from Round 1 of this fund will not be eligible to apply.
The closing date for applications is midday on the 23rd October 2019.
