Know your acronyms – a new £2 million project fund is now open to applications, the Children, Young People and Families and Adult Learning and Empowering Communities Project Fund (CYFEIF and ALEC Fund).
Administered by the Lloyds TSB Foundation for Scotland, the Fund is trying to:
- Promote parenting and family skills
- Contribute to reducing the educational attainment gap
- Improve life chances for looked after children
- Improve the safety of children and young people
Many of these aims to cross-over with child and family health, and may well be of relevance to Forum members.
Full guidelines and criteria for applications are available below – this one closes on 30th September 2016, so it’s a short-ish deadline.
