Youth funds

Following the recent announcement by the Department of Education outlining the need for a reduction in local government spending, we have been advised by the local Government Office for the South East, that monies previously allocated for the Youth Opportunity Fund (YOF) and Youth Capital Fund (YCF) no longer remain ring fenced.

Therefore a decision has been taken by Medway Council to ensure that resources concentrate on local priorities and the delivery of essential frontline services.

Unfortunately this will mean that applications received to date for funding from the 2010/11 YOF/YCF allocation cannot now be considered.

To access potential alternative funding, may we suggest that you contact Medway Council's Corporate Funding Unit, who may be able to advise a funding source to suit your project.

We wish you every success in seeking funding for your project.
