Those organisations delivering high quality, evidence-based interventions can bid for a share of the £80m Life Chances Fund. It is seeking expressions of interest from projects focused on early years that address attainment and behaviour, health and wellbeing and prenatal care and infant health.
In respect of the young people element, favour will be given to those projects who help those not in education, employment or training and tackling youth employment and juvenile crime.
Positive projects would be those delivering outcomes evidenced to create better life chances for children and not those with ‘one-size-fits all’ or ones that only address short-term results.
The application process is in two stages, the first expression of interest phase has a closing date of 31 March 2017.
