Lambeth Made CLIPS fund – a fund for sustainability and resilience


Apply for Lambeth Made/CLIP fund to help your youth project prepare for the future and adapt to a changing climate. You can apply for grants up to £10,000 to help with improving your facilities, developing your staff, improving your services and creating new ways of bringing in more income


Background to the fund


A Co-operative Local Investment Plan (CLIP) is a non-statutory local area plan that identifies local priorities for the Community Infrastructure Levy funding. The funding comes from local developers.

A review of the Children and Young People Voluntary Sector in Lambeth identified that many organisations are struggling financially in the current climate, partly due to substantial reductions in the level of grant funding available from local authorities and the increasing competition for external grant funding.

It may be difficult for your organisation  to invest in  training and developing your staff or improving your facilities. Funding in these areas can strengthen your organisation and help you improve the services you deliver to children and young people for the long term.

With a focus on children and young people’s services in Lambeth, the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) income has been established as a source of funding which can contribute to supporting organisations around these said difficulties.

It is anticipated that the total grants awarded over the two funding periods will amount to circa £420,000.


The two funding strands are:

1. Sustainability Funding

2. Resilience Funding, within which sit:

  • A leadership and Staff Bursary Fund
  • A Facility maintenance and modernisation Fund
  • Resilience grants
