Funding news

£10 million Inspiring Communities grant launched - Thursday 9 April 2009

The programme aims to support communities to raise the aspirations and educational attainment of young people.

Community groups have been invited to form partnerships with local authorities and secondary schools to apply for a share of £10 million from a new fund designed to improve the life chances of disadvantaged young people.

Initially based in 15 neighbourhoods, it will fund and support neighbourhood partnerships to deliver a programme of activities working with young people, their parents and communities.

Inspiring Communities is a joint initiative from Communities and Local Government, the Department for Children, Schools and Families and the Cabinet Office.
