The Early Action Neighbourhood Fund

Big Lottery Fund and Esmee Fairbairn Foudation

Early action is work that builds people’s readiness for life’s challenges and prevents problems from occurring, rather than dealing with the consequences of those problems.

The Early Action Neighbourhood Fund is a pioneering joint funding initiative between Comic Relief, Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, the Big Lottery Fund, The Legal Education Foundation, and Barrow Cadbury Trust. The Fund will provide £5.3 million over five years to three local partnerships led by voluntary sector organisations, working with statutory agencies, to develop and implement early action initiatives in family support, young people’s wellbeing and legal advice.
