  • Empower communities by funding smaller, grassroots community groups to find new solutions that are appropriate to their locality.

In the Fifth Round of the Innovation Fund 2023-25, up to eight grants of between £20,000 and £50,000 are available for innovative projects that take place over the Summer holidays and potentially over the October half-term and advance one or more of the following key aims:

  • Improving identification of and support to prevent violence against children and young people at greatest risk of harm and exploitation.
  • Expanding access to positive opportunities and providing development and support through training, apprenticeships, and employment and enrichment.
  • Developing stronger and more resilient families to better support young people.
  • Promoting healthy relationships and reducing exclusions and disengagement in education.
  • Providing communities with the support and resources to deliver sustainable reductions in violence.
