4YP Delighted to be Awarded Funding
Suffolk Young People's Health Project (4YP) is happy to be one of the local charities awarded support from a joint fund issued by the Big Lottery Fund and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport.
We have been granted 341,800 to help deliver a range of support for 12-25 year olds in Suffolk over three years.
This will contribute towards the excellent work we already provide, as well as expand and strengthen our provision.
The total £40 million national funding has been offered to boost the skills and life chances of 300,000 young people living in disadvantaged areas around the country.
It is largely going to be used for centres like 4YP, which respond to the needs of young people and the wide range of issues they may face.
Minister for Civil Society Tracey Crouch, said:
“This investment from the government and National Lottery players will have a transformational effect on the lives of some of our most disadvantaged young people. It will help thousands who might otherwise have gone under the radar flourish. Local voluntary and community youth organisations already do so much fantastic work and this £40 million will enrich the lives of many more young people throughout England.”
For small organisations like 4YP, this fund will mean we can confidently continue supporting young people for the foreseeable future, even in a period of financial uncertainlty for the UK. No doubt the demand for our services will continue to increase, so this funding will play an important part in sustaining the services we offer.
