Grants & Funding
We offer funding to support mission and ministry with children and young people in Southwark Diocese parishes. There is no deadline for applications and money will be allocated on a first come, first served basis, provided the criteria outlined below are met. This scheme normally provides grants of up to £300 but we will consider some grant applications of more than this where additional significant benefit is proposed, for example, a deanery initiative. Deanery grants can be offered up to £1500.
Local Training Fund
If you wish to organise your own training locally for volunteers, e.g. first aid, Godly Play, parenting, developing young leaders, CYP spirituality, Parenting for Faith etc., you can apply to our local training fund to help pay for any trainer costs.
Mission Micro Grants
Is your church or parish planning a new project for children and young people in your area? We offer micro-grants of up to £300 to help towards the cost of buying new equipment, running an event, residential, day trips etc. We are keen to encourage children and youth led proposals, where the CYP have taken the lead and have identified where to apply to raise money.
Individual Training Grants
We offer small grants to individuals to help towards the cost of training that supports your role working alongside CYP. Grants will be awarded on a case by case basis.
