Children & Young People

Revenue & Capital funding

Copeland Community Fund 2022-2025 Strategy continues to prioritise Children & Young People projects.

The Fund will accept projects targeting children and young people from 0 – 19 years (or up to 25 years if the young person has special educational needs and/or a disability). The purpose is to provide revenue and / or capital support to existing provision within Copeland and consider new complementary provision.

  • Areas projects may focus on include, but are not limited to:
    • Generic youth provision
    • Outdoor pursuits
    • Creative arts based provision
    • Emotional resilience
    • Improvement to facilities / equipment
  • Projects must demonstrate that they can meet the NDA Socio Economic Strategy.
  • Organisations can apply for children and young people projects on an individual basis, however, CCF also looks favourably on collaborative projects.
  • Applications to the Fund (with the exception of collaborative projects noted above) require match funding of:
    • 25% for projects with a grant request £3K to £25K
    • 50% for projects with a grant request in excess of £25k
  • Children and young people projects will be limited to a three-year funding term.
  • Any project wishing to apply should consider how they can achieve and demonstrate a mix of the following outputs (using the NDA TOMS 37):
    • Number of Attendances
    • Local Young People Assisted in their Skills Development
    • Number of Youth Volunteer Hours

Exclusions for the Children and Young People Fund include:

  • Faith based activities and venues (unless broader community use)
  • Residential activities (outside of Cumbria) including expeditions and overseas trips
  • Direct replacement of activities which are a statutory obligation
