further embed support to address parental conflict in their area,
thereby improving outcomes for children. The grant follows on from
the Reducing Parental Conflict Workforce Development Grant of
2021-2022 and increases the funding and range of RPC activities
that can be funded.
North Yorkshire County Council have been allocated £102,267 for 2022 – 2024 and additional monies in 2025 of £44,000 can only be applied for if the Department of Work and Pensions are satisfied that the funding has been used in accordance with their terms and conditions.
LAs are be required to bid for their grant funding allocation. To enable longer-term planning the DWP has requested LAs submit plans for the first two years (on the basis of the indicative amounts) of the grant upfront, with a review point before the third year’s funding. The deadline for submission of the bid is 13 May 2022.
