Funding Guidance for Matching Proposals

Please find attached the funding criteria and forms for two pots of DfE funding going through RAAs, for projects to improve matching and another round of funding on Early Permanence following the earlier projects already agreed, which many VAAs are part of.

The funding is being delivered through RAAs but partnerships with VAAs are being actively encouraged and members can use these documents to initiate conversations with RAAs where you have project ideas which would meet the funding objectives, or partnership work already in place which could be enhanced. This is a valuable opportunity to tackle some current frustrations about the matching process and also to further enhance the EPP work many VAAS have huge expertise in.

Documents are as follows:
