Camden based organisations working with children and young people can apply for grants of between £500 up to £3,000 to address their training and capacity building needs in three distinct areas:

If your organisation has already developed, tried, and tested a model of work or programme or a project, or scheme worthy of sharing with others in youth crime prevention or early intervention you can apply for the time it would take you to train other organisations or share your knowledge and expertise with others.
  • Organisational sustainability. The grant can be used for training and professional development opportunities that will strengthen your organisation’s resilience, development, and financial sustainability especially within the context of COVID 19.
