We are delighted to announce that due to the overwhelming number of applications received, additional funding has been made available and we are inviting a second round of applications to the KMPF Covid-19 Support Fund. The deadline for new applications is 5pm on Wednesday 24 June 2020.
This grant-funding opportunity is open to schools and community organisations based in Kent & Medway who are delivering education and training to young people between the ages of 14-19, and is intended to support students who are struggling to engage with education in the current situation.
As in the first round of funding, grants are available for proposals to support engagement through practical interventions and resources, such as purchasing learning materials, delivering additional careers and IAG support, and offering wellbeing resources or remote support. Applications for other categories of support may also be considered, providing that they relate to a known gap in funding where existing support cannot be obtained from elsewhere.
Funding grants are available for any amount up to £10,000, although consideration will now be given to requests up to £15,000 where there is an exceptional educational case. An application form and updated guidance documents are available below; however, we recommend that you email firstname.lastname@example.org to book a call with one of the KMPF team prior to completing the application. Please submit your application early, as we will be evaluating proposals on a rolling basis to maximise the time available for delivery.
