This process covers both organisations that are currently in receipt of wellbeing funding, as well as those not currently funded through this source. The Area Committee has established the Inner South Children and Young People’s working group to carry out this process and to ensure that better outcomes are delivered for children and young people, that there is no unnecessary duplication and that activities are linked to the Council’s ‘Child Friendly City’ priorities. Your application to run activities will need to demonstrate that you have fully complied with the requirements and priorities set out in the attached activity brief. This includes providing age appropriate activities for children and young people in the age ranges 4 – 7 years; 8 – 12 years; and 13 – 19 years. In submitting your application you will need to demonstrate:  Your proposed activities are for the benefit solely of children and young people living Inner South Leeds and promoted accordingly  you have a proven track record of delivering quality services for young people  your evidence of the need for the activities you are proposing, including identifying current service provision and any gaps in provision  That your activities will not duplicate other activities.  The added value you will bring to the provision of activities  your agreed partnership arrangements for delivering and enhancing your proposed activities  you have sound governance structures and financial management arrangements appropriate to receiving wellbeing funding and running activities for children and young people.  You have the appropriate policies including safeguarding protocols
