Early Help Grants were available to support projects that met one or more of the Local Children’s Partnership Group priorities for children and young people.
These grants will be used to support each of the 12 districts in Kent, allowing local projects and services to be developed in a flexible and responsive way through a community based offer.
The aim of the grant fund was to support local priorities whilst encouraging creativity through projects and services that improve outcomes for children and young people.
Applicants must have been:
- a non-statutory, not-for-profit organisation.
- launching a project that linked to at least one of the Local Children's Partnership Group priorities
- able to evidence the impact their project has had on local priorities.
In 2021, you could have applied for between £500 and £15,000 from up to 4 of the 12 districts, and submitted multiple applications to each district, but no organisation would be awarded more than £15,000 per district.
