Funding opportunity: Community engagement fund

**The deadline for applications has now passed.**


The Lancashire Violence Reduction Network would like to invite bids from grassroots organisations across Lancashire with a proven track record of engaging with young people at risk of exploitation or of becoming victim/offenders of violent crime.

This fund will enable third sector agencies and community interest companies to target those most at need. Examples of what activities are being sought are assertive street outreach/activity related engagement. This could include half term activity sessions, and expansion of current programmes to enhance capacity is acceptable, particularly in communities where young people have little access to positive activities.

Those with successful applications will be asked to demonstrate how this grant will contribute to the county’s Trauma Informed Lancashire pledge and all activity must be able to be delivered by 31st March 2022.

Terms and conditions

Once completed, an application should be submitted by Monday 31st January 2022, via the LVRN email inbox: Any application submitted after that date will not be eligible for financial support from this fund.

Lancashire Violence Reduction Network have allocated a provisional grant of £50,000 for the fund with a maximum of £5,000 per project. Assuming that all other criteria is met, grants will be assessed through criteria based on the level of each response using a 0-5 grading format. The LVRN reserves the right to limit the number of grant applications it will consider from a single organisation.

Any funding awarded will be paid in full by the LVRN and the recipient must provide evidence of its usage to avoid full repayment back to the LVRN.

In line with Home Office requirements all funding must be fully utilised by 31st March 2022 and there is no guarantee at present of any further funding beyond that date.

Applications MUST be submitted on the Commissioning and Grant Agreement 2021/2022 Application Form below and should be returned by email to:
