Total Award Amount

Young Barnet Foundation’s Space 2 Grow Children & Young People’s Fund is available to support local community organisations 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.


When funds allow and Trustees agree, there will be a structured application process for each round of funding, approporate to the size of the award, whereby you can submit your eligibility. Please note that ALL grant funded projects must be completed within twelve months of the award or agreed start date and you should only apply if you can proceed within twelve weeks of the grant award confirmation or otherwise agreed.

Application Process:

Each round of funding will be open and closed on dates agreed by the Trustees.   

The amounts awarded will vary based on the current level of funds and level of support from partner organisations. 

All applications MUST be made on the correct application form.
