Financial assistance is available to support work that looks to ensure that the legal and institutional framework is best adapted to meet the needs of children and families.
The Children and Families Grant programme, which forms part of the Foundation’s larger projects grant programme, aims to improve the legal and institutional framework to best suit the needs of children and families across the UK.
The scheme is interested in a wide range of topics which go beyond child protection in a narrow sense and in practical developments within this area as well as research based work.
Non-profit organisations and other charitable groups based in the UK are eligible for funding under this scheme.
All applicants for funding must demonstrate that proposals are suited to the Foundation’s requirements and could not be considered for funding from other sources such as other government bodies, or other more appropriate charities.
The deadline dates for 2015/16 are as follows:
- Outline applications: Friday 2nd November 2015
- Full applications: Monday 11th January 2016
