Urgent Capital Support Funding (UCS)

Contact our team for expert free help

Who can apply for Urgent Capital Support?

Academies and sixth-form colleges that are eligible for the CIF Funding can apply for an Urgent Capital Support (UCS) fund.

These applications can be submitted outside the CIF funding as they are for an urgent need for support. What this means is that funds can be requested as soon as the urgent condition appears.

Examples of evidence needed to verify if your school can apply include:

  • Health and Safety Risk relating to the building condition
  • Building condition issue that can result imminently or has already in the school closure
  • Building condition that has resulted in or risks in the closure of part or significant area of the school that can prevent curriculum from being delivered
  • Urgent works cannot be funded by the trust independently or via a CIF loan.

Urgent issues can include:

  • Structural
  • Health and Safety or Insurance compliance issues
  • Asbestos
  • Leaking roofs
  • Fire protection
  • Boiler and Pipework failure
  • Electrical

Eddisons’ expert team of certified surveyors has extensive experience helping academies, Trusts and schools apply for this type of funding and manage the project from beginning to end.
