CIF Appeals Update

The Department for Education recently announced its allocation of  Condition Improvement Fund (CIF) 2024/25. 

The limited funding available and large number of applications received means that the DfE is not able to fund all projects. Whilst it will be disappointing if your project has not been successful, there may be scope for your case to be reassessed via an Appeal. 

CIF AppealsAcademies will be able to Appeal the CIF 2024-25 outcome via the CIF Portal. The deadline for CIF Appeals is 7 May 2024, 12pm.

If you are unhappy with the CIF 24/25 outcome and considering an Appeal, Barker can help. Our CIF consultants will review your bids and advise you on the best way forward for your CIF Appeals or future resubmissions. We work with thousands of schools and multi-academy trusts in the UK to help them with winning CIF bids and appeals.   

In the recent round of CIF bids Barker has helped clients secure millions worth of funding. Successful projects ranged from £50,000 safeguarding projects to £1.6M heating programmes.
