Following a significant review of resources and strategy, the Fund has concluded that it will focus solely on young people and the criminal justice system going forward.
Though there will not be any funding rounds for work with young carers for the foreseeable future, the funders state that:
“We will continue to share our impact and knowledge about the needs of young carers with other funders to raise their awareness of the issues being faced and we will be identifying some opportunities over the next 12 months to work with partners who are trying to achieve more systemic change for young carers at a policy level”.
The first round of the 2023 funding is currently open for applications and is aimed at young people (aged 11 to 25) with criminal convictions.
Grants of £80,000 are available over two years for projects that utilise a Sport 4 Development approach. This means the intentional use of sport and physical activity to attain specific social development objectives, in this case reducing reoffending rates.
Registered charities, not-for-profit social enterprises and community interest companies that are working within the UK and have a UK office are eligible to apply.
Further guidance on the current funding round can be found on the Triangle Trust 1949 Fund website.
The deadline to apply is 23.59 on 21 May 2023.
