CMPP Grants

Youth Aspiration Fund (YAF) 


How to apply?

CMPP offer grants between £500 and £2,000 to organisations who wish to raise aspirations and promote emotional wellbeing in the young people of  Rushmoor and surrounding areas. We are looking to help you deliver those unique and inspirational projects!

Applicants can use the grant for one-off projects, equipment or resources but the grant funding cannot be used to pay for projects that already exist, transport or overhead costs.  

Alongside the financial support, we strongly encourage all organisations to utilise the human resource and expertise that exist across the partnership.Through CMPP, you are able to access a diverse range of employee volunteers who are able to dedicate company time to supporting your growth and development.

Who can apply for a grant?

We will consider applications from voluntary organisations, community groups, schools, colleges and charities or individuals in Rushmoor and surrounding areas.

How do we assess grant applications?

The CMPP Strategic Group, will score grants based on the following criteria and will favour projects that raise aspirations and support mental health and emotional wellbeing in young people:

  • The contribution and benefits to young people
  • The contribution to raising aspirations in young people
  • The contribution to promoting positive mental health and emotional wellbeing
  • The amount of young people benefiting from the project
  • Clear outcomes of the project
  • Offers value for money
  • Uniqueness of the idea(s)
  • Sustainability

What happens if you’re successful?

Your project will need to be completed within 12-months of gaining the grant funding.

To ensure responsible financial practice, you will need to provide receipts for how you’ve spent the grant.

To help us continue to motivate our partner organisations to fundraise we require an end of project case study/summary that we can share with our dedicated fundraisers, as your stories make a real difference!

You may be invited to come in and talk about the project at a special Celebration Event that brings together the good work of this Partnership. So, don’t be a stranger - we want to hear and see exactly how your project has benefited young people and the impact it has had in your organisation.

We also encourage all successful applicants to display our logo on any marketing and publicity associated to this project. This is a great way to promote your community and business relationships.

The YAF application window will close on the 16th of November 2018.
