Youth Service Grants Programme 2017-2020

Brighton & Hove City Council

The committee’s priorities are:

  • Ensure that the most vulnerable and disadvantaged children receive the Council’s support, consolidating services where possible, and targeting resources at those most in need
  • Take the Council on an improvement journey to achieve excellent services for children and young people by 2019, as rated by Ofsted
  • Provide greater challenge and support to council maintained schools to close the disadvantage and educational attainment gaps, including a focus on STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)
  • Eliminate long-term youth unemployment (18-24 years old) and boost apprenticeships in the city by 2019

The following will be key in meeting the eligible outcomes. Your project will:

Benefit young people aged 11-19 (up to 25 if they have special educational needs) who are from the local communities (such as an estate or neighbourhood), from communities of identity (such as being LGBTU) or communities of interest (such as playing sport or involvement in art or theatre work).

Target the highest areas of deprivation and show an understanding of the young people with protected characteristics within your neighbourhood and how to include them in the activities you are developing.

Succeed in encouraging participation with the voice of young people being embedded across all work, broadening the area of influence for young people. Your project will have a clear approach as to how young people are involved in and shape the activities and be part of the offer.

Put in place support within this geographic area that enhances the support of adult volunteers, builds capacity, links with community organisations and maximises use of venues.

Provide targeted support to those young people identified in need of early help via referral through established pathways.

Operate in a manner compliant with the Equalities Act 2010.
