Directorate Children & Young People 2021 Education Support Fund (ESF)
The Directorate Children & Young People (DCYP) is the MOD’s professional focal point for all matters relating to children and young people associated with the Armed Forces, are the lead organisation supporting the Fund.
Successful applications to date have been for a wide range of initiatives but have all been able to provide strong evidence of how their proposal would help Service children and the school overcome the effects of exceptional mobility/deployment; successful bids also demonstrated a good relationship with their Service community.
Applications for the 2021 Fund are for a one-off grant. Payments will be made by 5 April 2021. Audits will be carried out by DCYP in April 2022 to ensure funding has been spent as stated in the application and to assess the impact of the scheme.
To be eligible for a grant a school must be in the UK and must have Service children on roll whose parents are subject to exceptional mobility or deployment (see Criteria). Applicants should include clear evidence of the impact which regional panels (RP) can then use to accurately score applications.
The 2021 ESF bidding round opens on Monday 1 June 2020 and closes at 12.00pm (midday) on Wednesday 7 October 2020. Applications from England, Scotland and Wales should be forwarded to [link=mailto:DCYP-MOD-ESF-Mailbox@mod.gov.uk.]DCYP-MOD-ESF-Mailbox@mod.gov.uk. [/link]
