Funding Available for Projects that Help Young People Support Each Other On the Move Up to Secondary School – 24th February 2020 (England)

Co-op Foundation has launched a new funding round of its #iwill Fund. This fund supports the aim of the #iwill campaign to make social action part of life for as many 10 to 20-year-olds as possible, forming a habit of community involvement they will continue as adults.

This round of our #iwill Fund focuses on peer-to-peer support to improve children’s wellbeing during the period in which they move from primary to secondary school. This might typically begin any time during School Years 5 or 6 and continue into Years 7 to 8.

The funding is available to Multi-Academy Trusts, schools, charities, social enterprises, or other constituted voluntary or community organisation in England that are planning to work in one of the 30% most deprived areas.  Applicants also need to have a realistic plan for a peer-to-peer support project focused on the transition from primary to secondary school.

The Co-op Foundation welcome applications from organisations working in partnership, including approaches which involve both voluntary and public sectors such as a collaboration between a school and community organisation

Organisations can apply for up to £35,000 to cover any costs related to carrying out their project, including but not limited to:

  • salaries of staff involved in delivering or supporting the project
  • costs of project activities
  • proportionate contributions to organisational running costs required to support the delivery of the project
  • costs for learning and evaluation activities.

The closing date for applications is midday on the 24th February 2020.
