Space2Grow #21  - 2022 Home, School & Community Grant

Space2Grow#21 is Young Barnet Foundation's 2022 Home, School & Community funding round. Only members who have not previously received John Lyon's Charity funding are able to apply.


Young Barnet Foundation Members are invited to apply for a share of £50,000 of funding, with grants of £2,500-3,000 awarded per project. 

The purpose of this funding is not to only award the funding but for Young Barnet Foundation to help support and upskill members on the fundraising process.    We are looking to support members with bid writing, due diligence along with Monitoring and Evaluation.  AS the panel is independent we recommend all potential applicants to make contact with our member development team before submitting the application to scope and develop your application.    Email or call the office to get support of our Member Development team.  

As not all awards have yet been allocated we are reopening the round to members who haven't yet applied.     A number of Wave 1 Applicants (from March 2022) have development work on their applications so they can be resubmitted to the panel., but there is still capacity for new applications to be submitted to the panel.
