What is Space2Grow
Young Barnet Foundation’s Space2Grow Children & Young People’s Fund is available to support local charities, community organisations and social enterprises so they can deliver activities and services to children and young people in the London Borough of Barnet.
The main purpose of the fund is to:
Support local voluntary and community groups, who are members of the Young Barnet Foundation and are working with children and young people (and their families).
Grow activities and services for children and young people in the London Borough of Barnet.
Give priority to community organisations with limited access to other sources of funding. However, decisions will be on a case by case basis, based on the purpose of the grant and outcomes it will achieve for beneficiaries.
