In April 2021, we received funding from County Durham Community Foundation and the National Lottery Community Fund through the SOS Fund to support our work. As part of this programme, we recognise that a number of other organisations also support children and young people in the area, and we wish to encourage them to join in our programme of activity.
This bursary fund aims to support charitable and community organisations that wish to do more to help children and young people in the Stanley area by becoming more engaged with the work of SAYC.
What we will fund
We will support additional activities that will improve children and young people’s physical and mental health in the Stanley area. This can include physical activity sessions, 1:1 mental health support, group sessions, challenges, or any other activities that you can demonstrate will make a difference. They can be one off activities or regular activities over several weeks. These must be on top of what you would normally offer.
You can use a grant to pay for staff and running costs and items of equipment that will be used in specific additional sessions. You must itemise expenditure on the application form.
If successful, as a condition of receiving this grant you will need to complete our online monitoring form which will involve asking some simple questions from young people before they take part and afterwards. If you are offered a grant you will agree to this when you sign the offer letter.
There are two closing dates for applications. The first round closing date is 12pm 18th November and the second is 12pm 12th January.
Please download and read the Application Guidance before completing the application form.
The completed application form and accompanying documents should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
