‘Safe, Secure, Settled’ funding applications open
Comic Relief have launched the ‘Safe, Secure, Settled’ fund and are looking to invest in projects using sport to improve the lives of young people without a safe or secure place to live.
Safe, Secure, Settled will invest in sporting projects that ultimately help troubled young people gain the skills and resources to lead safe and positive lives. They will consider funding work that supports children and young people aged up to and including 25. They will also consider family-based interventions where the majority of beneficiaries are under 25.
The team want to hear from organisations who can demonstrate a deep understanding of what makes a positive difference for young people in this situation in their local context. They expect that projects will contribute to a minimum of one of the following outcomes:
- Children and young people increase and/or sustain their engagement with education
- Children and young people have increased pathways into training or employment
- Children and young people increase life skills
- More children and young people have a safe and supportive network or trusted place to go for advice
Applications are welcome for a minimum of £100,000 and a maximum of £500,000, over a period of between two and four years. They will support projects being delivered in the UK, India, South Africa, Brazil or Kenya. Applications for work in India, South Africa, Brazil or Kenya can be made by a locally registered organisation directly delivering the project or in partnership with a UK-based organisation.
Safe, Secure, Settled will be open for proposals until midday UK-time on the 14th June 2018. Please note that applications can be made at any time once the application window is open, and applications that are made earlier in the process may be reviewed before the deadline.
