Comic Relief’s Safe, Secure, Settled fund awards grants of between £100,000 and £500,000 to not-for-profit organisations with projects that are using sport to improve the lives of children and young people (up to 25 years) who are homeless or living in temporary accommodation to gain skills to lead safe and positive lives.
Projects should take a creative approach, use sport as a tool for social change in their approach and contribute to at least one of the following outcomes:
- Children and young people increase and/or sustain their engagement with education.
- Children and young people have increased pathways into training or employment.
- More children and young people have a safe and supportive network or trusted place to go for advice.
- Children and young people increase life skills, for example money management, daily living skills, legal rights, problem solving, creative thinking, communication, interpersonal relationships, mindfulness, assertiveness, empathy, coping with stress, trauma and loss, resilience.
Proposals will need to:
- Go above and beyond confidence building and be able to demonstrate how sport can be used to achieve positive social change.
- Demonstrate wider social outcomes and not just focus on increasing participation in sport for the physical health benefits.
Funds are available to cover a period of between two and four years. The grant request should be appropriate to the size of the organisation that is applying.
Applications for work in India, South Africa, Brazil or Kenya can be made by a locally registered organisation directly delivering the project or in partnership with a UK-based organisation.
Deadline: Thursday 14 June 2018, 12 noon.
