Youth (£25k + Large)

Revenue & Capital funding

Copeland Community Fund 2019-2022 Strategy continues to prioritise Youth large projects in an annual ‘Call Out’. This financial year’s grant applications should be received by 18th January 2021.

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
