London Early Years Campaign – funding opportunity

Oct 1, 2018 | Funding

City Hall will soon be inviting proposals from organisations to apply for small grants as part of our London Early Years Campaign.
The Mayor is offering a total of £150,000 to improve awareness of free early education for 2-year-olds and increase take up of places by eligible families.
City Hall will award a maximum of 30 grants of between £5,000 and £15,000 each to local projects. The proposals must target areas of low take up and evidence how they will effectively engage families and communities who are currently missing out on this vital offer.
Interested bidders should have excellent links with local communities and understanding of barriers to take up of early education specific to those communities. They expect the applicants to have strong partnerships with their respective local authorities in order to understand their local childcare market, and with their local early years providers in order to provide families with access to a childcare place.
Delivery is expected to take place between January 2019 and September 2019.
The Greater London Authority (GLA) will run a pan-London social media campaign to support the local activities and to enhance their impact.
They will be holding an information session for organisations interested in the London Early Years Campaign on Friday 12 October at 10am at City Hall. The session will provide:

  • an overview of the programme specification and application process
  • opportunity to ask questions
  • opportunity to network with early years sector organisations

You can register and find out further information via their Eventbrite page
