Positive Futures Fund

Southwark Council is pleased to launch its Positive Futures Fund for 2019 to 2022.  The Council recognises the detrimental impact that serious youth violence and knife crime has on our communities and is committed to work with communities to find local solutions that help young people stay away from knives.

Through the programme the Council is seeking to invest £500,000 to support community groups that provide inspiring opportunities for young people across the borough.  The aim of the fund is also to support community organisations to provide inspiring opportunities for young people that divert them away from crime. Young People will be at the heart of the programme.  All applications to the fund should be co-designed with young people.

The Fund will be implemented in two phases:

Phase 1 (grants for one year) open

Deadline: 3 May 2019


Phase 2 (grants for 2.5 years)

Opens on 26th June: closes on 21 August 2019.
