Keep the Promise Fund Now Accepting Applications

An online application process is now available for groups working with children, young people, and families in Scotland for funding to help #KeepThePromise and address key challenges in delivering The Promise.

The Keep the Promise Fund is now accepting applications from public and third sector organisations in Scotland that support children, young people, and families with the care system for grants of up to £250,000 over two years to support commitments to #KeepThePromise and the national objectives of Plan 21-24.

A total of £12 million has been made available by the Scottish Government for projects that focus on three key areas where critical challenges are being faced in the drive to deliver The Promise:

  • A supportive workforce.
  • Supportive school structure (Right to Education).
  • Youth justice and rights.

Funding is targeted at organisations and collaborations that are already implementing The Promise and can use their knowledge and skills to put new and innovative solutions into action.

The fund will support the creation of pioneering opportunities and capacity development across an organisation or collaboration, including backfilling posts, salary costs, staff development, or external expertise and evaluation.

An online application process is now available, wherein groups must submit an eligibility survey before being invited to complete a full application.

The deadline for applications is 16 September 2022.
