Catalyst fund: Student safeguarding on campus

HEFCE-funded higher education institutions and further education colleges which are directly funded by HEFCE, are invited to submit proposals for projects on student safeguarding, to receive Catalyst funding of up to £50,000.

We expect a range of proposals, relating to institutions’ own strategies and to local and regional priorities, and building on the activities and research HEFCE, Universities UK and other bodies have undertaken in these areas. Further information, including the application process, selection criteria and timescale, is provided in Annex A.

Funding will be made available from the Catalyst Fund. We launched the fund in August 2012 as the route for discretionary investment to support key strategic priorities, and advised then that from time to time we might issue calls for projects relating to specific topics.

The Catalyst Fund remains open for bids in key priority areas, but we are unlikely to take forward other bids for student safeguarding while this call is running. Please discuss this further, if necessary, with your HEFCE institutional team.

Funding is available to higher education institutions and further education colleges which are directly funded by HEFCE. Based on the legal restrictions to our funding responsibilities, we can consider proposals from directly funded further education colleges only where these link directly to the development and delivery of prescribed courses of higher education.

The detailed requirements of the call are set out as Annexes A and B below.

Higher education institutions and directly funded further education colleges are invited to complete the proposal template, which is available to download below.

The deadline for the return of completed business cases is noon on Thursday 2 February 2017. Bids must be emailed to safeguardingcatalyst@hefce.ac.uk.
