Violence Reduction Fund 2021

Funding is available to community groups, social enterprises and non-profit organisations working in South Yorkshire who provide support to young people to stop them engaging in violent crime.

The South Yorkshire Violence Reduction Unit are asking for applications in to their Violence Reduction Fund 2021 from organisations who are working with young people on a range of issues.

Funding of up to £20,000 is available and applications are sought from those who are working with young people supporting the Violence Reduction Unit’s sixteen priorities.

Some of these priorities include:

  • encourage safe, nurturing and stable relationships between children and their parents and caregivers,
  • work to end domestic abuse,
  • promote gender equality to prevent violence against women,
  • support people who misuse substances to make positive choices,
  • support people into employment and provide pathways to further education/re-training,
  • work to change cultural and social norms that support violence

You can find out more about the 16 priorities by clicking this link – South Yorkshire Violence Reduction Priorities

The activity or projects can be existing or new projects. Core costs, staff costs and activity costs can be funded.

This round of funding closes on 28 June 2021 at 12 noon.  No late admissions will be accepted.

A panel will score applications and successful recipients will be notified week commencing 12 July 2021.

The funding must be spent before 31 March 2022, to adhere to the terms and conditions of the grant.
