Build Up Fund: Youth Crime Prevention and Capacity Building Grants

About the Fund

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:

  • Youth crime prevention. Organisations can apply for training to improve their knowledge, understanding and skills in youth crime identification, prevention and supporting young people to build positive pathways.
  • Collaborating or sharing best practice on youth crime prevention schemes. 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.

Application Deadline

Deadline for applications: 10 October 2021.

The new Camden Council Voluntary and Community Sector Investment Programme 2017-2024: Strategic Partners Fund

You may know that in December the Council’s Cabinet approved a £5.1m annual investment programme beginning in 2017. Details of the approved proposals are available here (item 10).

The first fund to launch under this new programme will be the Strategic Partners Fund, which contains funds for both Neighbourhood Strategic Partners and Equalities Strategic Partners.

From 27 January,  this webpage will have details of the fund, application forms and Handy Guides.

That page should answer most questions about the Strategic Partners Fund. We are also holding two identical events where you can ask additional questions. Places are on a first-come, first-served basis, and interested organisations should send a maximum of two staff or trustees.

The events are both at the Old Town Hall on Euston Road, 9 to 11am on 2 February and 6 to 8pm on 4 February. They will include time for attendees to network with other interested organisations.

To register, email vcs@camden.gov.uk saying which event you want to attend. Please specify any access requirements. If these events generate questions not answered by the application forms and the Handy Guides, we will post answers on the webpage above.

 

Best wishes
