New fund aiming to test the impact of positive activities on prevention of violence

New funding from the Youth Endowment Fund will test the impact of positive activities on the prevention of violence, specifically sports, arts, adventure, or wilderness activities

New funding from the Youth Endowment Fund will test the impact of positive activities on the prevention of violence, specifically sports, arts, adventure, or wilderness activities.

There is great interest in the impact of these types of activities in Southwark, and the council is keen to encourage and support VCS partners to apply.

Interested organisations need to be able to work at scale (as proposals must support a minimum of 350 C&YP over a 24-month period) and you need to commit to a robust evaluation – which may include a randomized controlled trial.

The deadline for applications is Friday 26th May. More information can be found here

If you are interested in developing a bid please contact Chloe Harvey at Southwark Council who can link you to children’s services/ YJS to ensure that you can demonstrate robust plans to work with statutory services to reach the required numbers of young people.
