Youth (£25k + Large)

Revenue & Capital funding

Copeland Community Fund 2019-2022 Strategy continues to prioritise Youth large projects in an annual ‘Call Out’.

The Fund will accept youth 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 Policy.
  • Organisations can apply for youth 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:
    • 50% for projects with a grant request over £25k
  • Youth projects will be limited to a three-year funding term.
  • Any project wishing to apply should consider how they can achieve the ‘Essential’ output:
    • Number of Attendances *(Essential output)
    • Local Young People Assisted in their Skills Development
    • Number of Youth Volunteer Hours

 

Exclusions for the Youth 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
