How we use local geographic and thematic areas of interest

We recognise the importance of relationships, with grantees, with applicants and with other funders.  We want to be more transparent by talking externally about our local geographic and thematic areas of interest as these form an integral part of local plans of action.

However, whilst an application may fit with a specific geographic or thematic area of interest, this does not mean that funding will be automatically allocated to that applicant.

We consider several things when allocating funding:

number 1

Evidence of need for the funding.

number 2

The strength of outcomes for children and young people

number 3

Evidence that the organisation is best placed to deliver the project

number 4

Evidence of involvement of children and young people in shaping the project

number 5

Evidence of good project planning

Applications should support us in delivering our strategic priorities and decisions are made at a local and UK level, underpinned by local insight and knowledge and work undertaken by our Research Team, identifying the impact of Covid-19 on children and young people.
