Details

The government is clear that the voluntary and community sector plays, and will continue to play, a significant role in reforming services for children, young people and families.

A new DfE grant funding competition was announced by ministers following the spending review announcements in October 2010. The new grants will run over two financial years, with around £61 million to be allocated in the 2011 to 2012 year and around £57 million in the 2012 to 2013 year. A national prospectus was published on 22 November 2010, inviting organisations to bid for the delivery of a wide range of activities of national significance for children, young people and families through an open competition.
