Children, Young People, Families and Adult Learning Third Sector Fund
Third sector organisations that support children, young people, families and adult learners are now able to apply for core funding from the new Children, Young People, Families and Adult Learning Third Sector Fund (CYPFAL) which will provide up to £16m for 2 years from April 2023.
The CYPFAL Third Sector Fund will replace the existing Children, Young People and Families Early Intervention & Adult Learning and Empowering Communities Fund (CYPFEI & ALEC) which launched back in 2016 and has supported core services and infrastructure of 115 national third sector organisations, and collectively supported over 2.5 million people.
The new fund focuses on providing core funding to organisations that are delivering services and support targeted towards:
positive outcomes for children, young people, families and adult learners, with a particular focus on the Scottish Government policy priorities;
Children, Young People, Families and Adult Learners affected by Poverty;
Implementation of UNCRC;
Family Support; Mental and Physical Health and Mental Wellbeing;
Equalities and Wellbeing.
Applications can be completed online until 15:00 on 05 September 2022 via the Corra website where guidance and the online application form is available.
