The Youth Endowment Fund in partnership with BBC Children in Need and The Hunter Foundation has opened a new multi-million-pound funding round.
The aim is to test how partnerships between local public services and community organisations can protect children and young people from violence and exploitation outside the home.
They will be funding up to five local authority partnerships in England and Wales. Each partnership will initially receive approximately £500,000 to deliver the project for 18 months. Projects will be funded and evaluated for a further two or three years, if effective.
Applications must be led and submitted by the local authority.
Further details can be found here
Applications are open until 5pm Tuesday 16th May 2023.
