Co-op Foundation has launched the latest round of its #Iwill Fund. Through the fund charities, social enterprises or other form of not-for-profit voluntary or community groups can apply for funding to deliver peer support and/or youth-led advocacy projects to help young people up to the age of 20 experiencing bereavement.
In this round, £50,000 is available and the Foundation expect to make around 5 grants of up to £10,000 each, for 1 year. Priority will be given to organisations planning to operate in the 30% most deprived areas of the UK. Successful organisations will be able to apply for additional grants in year 2 and 3 of this fund.
Successful applicants can use funding to cover any costs related to carrying out your project, including but not limited to:
- salaries of staff involved in delivering or supporting the project
- costs of project activities
- contributions to organisational running costs
- costs for learning and evaluation activities.
The closing date for applications is 12 noon on the 3rd April 2020.
