Department for Education grant funding part 2


Community Care magazine has claimed that the Department for Education’s funding for  voluntary and community organisations will be worth £118m over the next two years. The magazine quotes a Department spokesperson saying, “We are investing £59m each year over the next two years to fund the voluntary and community sector to help deliver key national priorities for children, young people and families.” The fund is intended to help organisations adjust to new funding arrangements. There is some uncertainty over the figure, with CYPNow suggesting that a total of £59m will be made available over the next two years.

When the DfE programme launched last month the government was unable to specify how much money would be available for bidders. In total 553 applications for funding have been made, of which 196 applications have been progressed to stage two. Formal bids from these successful tenders must now be made by 31 January. Applicants will be told whether their bids have been successful on 25 February with funding commencing from April.
