Walcot BounceBack is a £2 million programme which will run for two years from April 2021. This is an additional Walcot Foundation programme, on top of our usual annual grants programmes.
BounceBack’s purpose is to help low-income Lambeth residents under the age of 30 find paid work. It is our major, Phase Two response to the impact of the pandemic.
It is focused on those who (a) have been displaced from employment because of the pandemic and (b) those who are coming new to the jobs market and have found their opportunities narrowed by the pandemic’s effect on the wider labour market.
We are now inviting proposals from organisations to deliver the programme. We expect to award up to 15 grants each worth £100,000 over the two years. The closing date for applications is 12 April 2021. Full details here.
