Children and Family Wellbeing Service Grants Scheme

The Children and Family Wellbeing Service, (previously children's centres and Young People's Service) allocates funding to support local third sector organisations working with young people.

We aim to meet specific local needs by supporting local groups to extend the range and quality of places to go and things to do for young people in the local area.

We give priority to groups who support and work with vulnerable young people.

Who can apply?

Only Voluntary, Community and Faith Sector (VCFS) groups registered with the Children and Family Wellbeing Service can apply. Find out how to register.

When to apply

You must apply for funding before your project takes place as we will not fund applications to cover expenditure already made. You can apply for funding anytime throughout the year.

How much you can apply for?

The maximum amount we can give to any registered group is £2,000 in one financial year.

How to apply?

The Small Grants process for 2018 - 2019 is now open for applications.

To apply you must fill in the application form (DOCX, 36.3 KB). Please make sure you read the guidance notes (PDF, 23 KB) before you fill in the form.

A panel of young people will assess all completed applications and make recommendations regarding each application.

All applications will then be considered at the children, young people and schools cabinet decision making session, which takes place every 3 months.
