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.
As such, organisations have restricted ability to access the continual professional development, skills building, infrastructure and capital improvements which could provide meaningful impact on their resilience and sustainability to deliver CYP services.
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
