Grant to Burgess Sports 26 Jun 2019
This project will provide holiday multi sports activities to disadvantaged young people living in an area of local deprivation. The activities will reduce isolation, increase confidence and improve health..
1 in 5 young people on the UK are unemployed. The Street League Academy programmes use sports (primarily football and dance) as a hook to engage with those young people in Manchester furthest from employment, and support them to gain the vital skills, knowledge and confidence required to gain sustained employment and look forward to a financially independent future. The daily football or dance sessions are critical as they teach young people skills like teamwork, communication and leadership that are vital for the workplace. Employability sessions support young people to learn how to craft a CV, job-search and gain interview skills. These skills are complemented by two-week work placements, careers advice and mock-interview practice.With this funding Street League can offer CV workshops, mock interview sessions and other employee engagement opportunities to BA staff, as well as facilitating visits from BA staff & roadshows if required.

Project 51 is a partnership between Sported, a sport for change membership organisation and Women in Sport. The grant will support a programme of research, training and capacity building support for 36 grassroots sports, youth and community organisations that are already using sport as a tool to tackle social issues. The work aims to raise the aspirations of 11-18 year old girls living in some of the most socially deprived areas of the UK by supporting Sported member groups to increase their ability to engage and empower girls in their community and to deliver programmes that challenge harmful gender stereotypes.
On average high-risk victims live with domestic abuse for 2.3 years before getting help (Safe Lives, 2015). The window of opportunity to escape an abusive relationship is often brief.Bright Sky, an app developed by Hestia, supports victims of abuse to understand their situation and quickly find help from national and local services. A second phase of app development will heighten security for users, expand the directory of support services, and make the app available in three major community languages; Polish, Urdu and Punjabi. Through sector-wide partnerships and liaison with the police and CPS, the app will be promoted, widening its reach and supporting more women to escape abuse.

Teens and Toddlers 28 Mar 2018
In Hackney there are identified needs around the emotional and mental health of young people; need is even greater within the BAME community (source: 2016 Hackney JSNA). Toddlers and Teens is already active within schools in Hackney running its mentoring programme; this raises the skills and confidence of disadvantaged 11-18 year olds by supporting them to be role-models for pre-school children.

Moving from surviving to thriving with CALM 2: Earlier Intervention project with high risk groups 28 Mar 2018
Suicide is a gender issue - 76% of all suicides in the UK are men. Societal definitions of masculinity play a significant role, making it difficult for many men to recognise and talk about their problems. This project will build the capacity of CALM's front line services so they are available to more high-risk young men who need urgent support. The helpline and web chat are both very oversubscribed and this funding will mean they can offer a longer service (12 hours a day) and offer more capacity to ensure they respond to all men who contact them. As a result more men will receive the help they need to better manage their mental health and reduce their suicide risk.
Perpetrator App: Ending Domestic Abuse 16 May 2018
This project is to develop an app to provide information for perpertrators of domestic abuse, those who feel they may become perpertrators, and anyone supporting them or aware of this risk. Research shows that most men who commit murder in a domestic setting have previously disclosed to GPs, however there is little information for men or professionals, about what help might be possible before things escalate. As well as developing the app, Hestia hope to work with Public Health England, CCGs, the Police and Home Office to ensure that information gets to men and the services they engage with. They will consult with service providers to get full information about what is available.
Beyond 30% 25 Jul 2018
In the UK, there is a workplace culture in sport that continues to discriminate against women. Women in Sport (WIS) have uncovered aspects of the culture in many sports organisations that needs to change so that both women and men can progress and thrive. Through the Beyond 30% project WIS will: 1) identify and test solutions that address barriers that prevent women from progressing and thriving in the sport workforce; 2) empower women to speak out against discrimination; 3) identify the support they need to move into leadership roles. The grant will fund direct project costs associated with the Beyond 30% project.
On average high-risk victims live with domestic abuse for 2.3 years before getting help (SafeLives, 2015). The window of opportunity to escape an abusive relationship is often brief. Bright Sky, an app developed by Hestia, supports victims of abuse to understand their situation and quickly find help from national and local services. In response to user feedback, a third phase of development will make the app available in Welsh and Bengali and will highlight legislative differences across the devolved nations of the UK. The grant will also allow the directory of support services to be regularly updated and so will support more women to escape abuse.
Depaul UK Sustainability Fund 25 Jul 2018
Depaul UK, who runs the national NIghtstop programme for young homeless people has experienced significant growth over the past 5 years and now needs to invest in data recording systems to enable them to collect and analyse data more efficiently from across our 100 national Depaul UK projects. With better data collection and evaluation systems in place and improved resource in this area, they will be able to better understand the young people they support and ensure services are providing maximum impact. This will also help to make a strong evidence-based case for additional funding in the areas where young people desperately need more support. We can share our results and learnings with
Application for Staff Funding 09 Jan 2019
The Armitage Foundation exists to increase diversity across UK medical schools by working with students from Y9 to increase their confidence to study medicine. Data from 2015 shows that more than 50% of UK schools do not produce a single medical applicant. This grant application is mainly for a part-time staff member for the Foundation.

Holistic Needs Assessment (HNA) Portal 03 Jul 2019
Muscular Dystrophy UK are the leading organisation supporting at least 70,000 people living with a range of muscle wasting conditions in the UK. The project is looking to work in partnership with Sitekit to develop an online Holistic Needs Assessment portal (HNA), where people living with these conditions can conduct their own wellbeing assessments, which will make it easier for NCAs (Neuromuscular Care Advisors) to manage their care plans, reduce the risk of side-lining issues such as mental health, and enable them to be signposted more quickly to tailored services. There are only 60 NCAs, each managing the care plans of about 500 patients.
My Story Matters - Voices of Young Survivors 04 Sep 2019
Through the power of storytellying, My Story Matters will help young people to recongise the early signs of domestic abuse in their relationships. Current support service provision does not reach young people, leaving them hidden, isolated and blaming themselves for the abuse. Through a digital platform employing a range of comms methods that work for them, young survivors will be able to safely tell their stories and connect with peers to share and validate experiences. Informed and empowered, users can connect with sources of help, help others and use their collective voice to influence and advocate for positive change in attitudes and services.
Team Up Take Part 04 Sep 2019
In Rotherhithe, South London, there has been a rapid influx of new residents who have little knowledge of the local community or connection to it. There is a presumption that this group is self-sufficient and independent, but they can lack friendships and long term connections regardless of their achievements in their professional lives. There is also an ongoing problem around isolated vulnerable/older people. Team Up Take Part will bring people together from all backgrounds through a sport-based befriending programme that will encourage socially isolated people to build connections with their local community and make use out of local green/open spaces and other community assets.
