Our work would not be possible without the support of our Funding Partners, Delivery Partners and Corporate Partners
All of our projects receive significant statutory or private funding from a variety of sources. These partnerships provide the financial foundation for the delivery of our projects across Scotland.
Administered by Corra, we receive a CYPFEIF grant towards core costs.
The Henry Smith Charity provides a grant to support our core programme development.
The CAF Resilience Fund is providing funding towards a variety of core and programme costs to ensure the charity is resilient and in a position to move forward post covid.
Over the years we have learned that delivering our projects in partnership with other locally based organisations increases the chances of young people securing jobs, apprenticeships or going into further education when they have completed the programme.
All of these partners are key to referring young people to the projects. Many provide additional support to the young people during the programme – and some also provide match funding.
Dumbarton Road Corridor Youth Project (DRC)
The Pathfinder Project is delivered in partnership with DRC who engage and refer young people – and provide continued support to those who need it throughout the length of the programme.
Our Leith Pioneers project in Edinburgh is delivered in partnership with Cyrenians, through the secondment of a part time Youth Engagement Worker who identifies young people for the programme and provides additional support to them throughout the length of the programme.
Partnerships with three local schools – Leith Academy, Trinity Academy and Drummond Community High School – are the main source of referrals to Cyrenians for the Leith Pioneers project.
We are keen to build relationships with large and small businesses, involving staff at every level, customers and clients. We develop corporate partnerships on an individual basis to support local projects and the charity’s development across Scotland. Our current, and recent, charity partnerships are with:
