High Sheriffs Fund – Funding for Youth Projects

Following receipt of a kind donation from the outgoing High Sheriff, Jill Hughes, there is additional funding for youth projects that help reduce the fear of crime and anti social behaviour from the High Sheriffs’ Fund. Community groups within the County Council boundary of Lincolnshire can apply for up to £5,000, although the average award is likely to be in the region of £1,000. The process is very straight forward and advice and support can be given relating to form filling etc.

What will they fund? Diversionary activities for young people, intergenerational work that deals with the fear of crime by bringing communities together, community safety initiatives, youth activities etc. Successful grants have been awarded to projects to cover the cost of youth activities, alternative curriculum provision, youth music, multicultural arts sessions, youth club provision etc. If you have an idea and want to speak to Grants staff before applying, please call 01529 305825.

The next closing date for receipt of applications is on 1 September 2017, with decisions notified at the beginning of October 2017.
