New fund for projects using sport to improve the lives of young people without a safe or secure place to live.
For Sport Relief 2018 the Safe, Secure, Settled fund will invest in projects that are using sport to improve the lives of young people without a safe or secure place to live, helping them to gain the skills and resources to lead safe and positive lives. They will consider work that supports children and young people aged up to and including 25. They will also consider family-based interventions where the majority of beneficiaries are under 25. The work should make a meaningful change to the lives of young people who are without a secure or safe place to live.
They expect projects to contribute to at least of 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; children and young people increase life skills; more children and young people have a safe and supportive network or trusted place to go for advice. Proposals to this initiative will need to demonstrate wider social outcomes and not just focus on increasing participation in sport. It will support projects being delivered in the UK, India, South Africa, Brazil or Kenya.
