Useful Information ahead of your visit

Risk Assessment

We’ve put together a comprehensive risk assessment, so you don’t have to! Please contact us at for further information.


  • Can we apply for staffing?
    No. The Tottenham Youth Fund is for equipment or one off trips. The maximum level young people can apply for is £250 and would not cover staff salary.
  • Can schools apply?
    No. Only young people between 11 - 19 years old can apply. Organisations and institutions cannot apply. Young people from your organisation and institutions can apply, including schools. However for schools the application must be for activities that are not during school hours or as part of the curriculum. It can be for an after-school activity like a Football programme.
  • Our organisation is based in another borough, but we deliver in Tottenham - can our young people apply?"
    Yes. It would be helpful if you made that clear in the application form to avoid delays. For example, our project is delivering at Chestnuts Community Centre and this is bid is specifically for this project.
  • Our project is a private organisation, can young from our organisation apply?"
    This is dependent on the type of organisation you are, if it is a profit making company then we will not accept the application. We will also not accept applications where there is not at least two bank signatories or where the equipment is being used to generate profit which is not being reinvested back into the project. For example: If young people apply for catering equipment for their tuck-shop and all profits go back into running the project or service, then we will accept the application. However if your young people apply for catering equipment for a private profit making cafe based at your building, then we will not accept the application.
  • We are young people who do not belong to a youth project or organisation, we want to apply to help us start something - can we do that?"
    The Tottenham Youth Fund love it when young people want to do things for themselves. Sadly, when it comes down to money, we have to make there are some rules in place. You will need to ask an organisation to help you. Remember, whatever you do will need other things like insurance or health and safety in place. There are a lot of youth organisations which will help you take care of all the boring bits so you can do what you want to do.
  • Do you fund religious or political activity?
    We do not fund religious activity - however young people applying from churches, mosques, synagogues etc are not excluded from applying, as long as the activity is not religious in nature. We do not fund party political activity - however we are happy to accept (and encourage) applications from young people who are campaigning on a social cause (i.e.. votes at 16 or period poverty) or civil responsibility projects (i.e.. UK Youth Parliament, Youth Councils etc.). So for example, if an application comes in for tee-shirts and leaflets to help highlight a campaign against gang crime, we will accept it. If an application came from the Labour Party or Lib Democrats to for leaflets for young people to join a party, we won't accept it.
  • We need the money before your deadline, can you decide on ours early?"
    Sorry, no we can't the Decision Committee only meets 4 times a year. We also feel it's unfair if people get a decision early and then there are no funds for those who apply in time for the deadlines.
  • Why would you reject our application?
    The main reason will probably be that we do not have enough money for everyone. But there could be other reasons (some of them answered above). We will explain why when we respond. We won't reject an application based on spelling, grammar or because we other people wrote more or less. As long as you are clear about your idea, what you want and what it's for, then that's all we ask for.
  • Who is on the Decision Committee?
    Councillor Seema Chandwani, David Lammy MP and Dr Victor Olisa QPM Councillor Seema Chandwani is a local Councillor for West Green ward in Tottenham. David Lammy is the Member of Parliament for Tottenham. Dr Victor Olisa QPM used to be the Police Borough Commander for Haringey and is now a Trustee at the Selby Trust.
