Kids Co. has received funding and support from the Youth Sector Development Fund to expand their services to support more of South London’s most vulnerable young people.

The funding will also enable them to develop a Centre of Excellence, to offer training in the successful methods and techniques used at Kids Co. to the wider children and young people’s work force.

As for all organisations in receipt of the YSDF funding, Kids Co.’s use of the funding will be bound by the terms and conditions set out in their grant agreement. Each month, Kids Co. will be monitored against key performance indicators demonstrating progress toward the objectives of the YSDF.
