Time: - | Venue:

There is opportunity to apply for the next and final round of the Youth Work Development Grants for delivery in 2017-18 financial year.

Any organisation wishing to make an application is asked to carefully consider all the points in the guidance notes before making an application. We expect this to be oversubscribed in terms of applications and it will be particularly important that you clearly follow these notes.

Can we particularly highlight that:


•        Grants will only be considered for 3rd Sector Voluntary, Community and Faith organisations that are working within the Bradford District.


•        This is one off funding. All applications will need clear sustainability plans that are evidenced and convincing that the project if given funding would be sustainable without further support from the Council or be primarily reliant upon significant grant funding from other funders. Sustainability plans need to be creative and show a range of potential income streams. We would expect income generation activity to be initiated early in the project and to parallel alongside the development activity.


•        The focus for this funding is that it is for the initiation and setting up of additional activity rather than funding existing activity, and that any developments reach new / different young people to those reached by your existing activities.


If you are thinking of making an application and wish to find more details of this funding we are running an information session at Margaret McMillan Tower, Princes Way, Bradford, BD1 1NN on Monday 14th November at 5.30pm. Please register online if you wish to attend. You will receive an automatic confirmation email once you have completed the process. Please be aware that this is an information session and attendance at this session is not a prerequisite requirement to submission of an application.


Deadline for applications is Friday 9th December at 4pm. All applications are to be submitted electronically to Heather Wilson at by the deadline. Late applications will not be considered.
