Bristol City Council has set up the Youth Sector Support Fund (SSF) to support Bristol-based organisations working with local children and young people. The fund, which launches on Monday 23 July, will support projects and collaborations that result in a diverse range of services for children and young people 8-19 years old and a stronger youth and play sector. This fund aims to complement Targeted Youth Services (TYS) contracts by filling gaps in services across the city.

City Funds, an investment funding initiative for Bristol, will offer mixed funding and early-stage lending to a range of projects that tackle inequality in the city. The aim is to bring together investment, grant, and local authority support.

There are four priorities for investment:

1. No Child Goes Hungry - helping communities grow, prepare and cook fresh food that is healthy and affordable.

2. Economic inclusion - making the local economy more diverse, and including deprived areas of the city, helping to secure employment.
