The Youth Social Action Fund

85

Aims/priorities: The Youth Social Action Fund is open to community groups that will promote volunteering, fundraising and campaigning amongst young people aged between 10 and 20 (25 years for young people with disabilities). This fund is part of the wider multi-agency #iwill campaign.

There are 6 key principles of social action that your project should include:

  • Challenging – Taking the young people out of their comfort zone, whilst keeping the activities fun and enjoyable
  • Youth-led – Young people are taking a lead in decision making and creating ideas for the project
  • Socially Impactful – The project has clear benefit to the community
  • Progressive – There is knowledge of your local area and how the project can link in with existing activities
  • Embedded – A sustainable project giving lasting skills that can be used throughout life
  • Reflective – The young people are able to look back on the project and evaluate their Experiences

Grant amount: Between £1,000 and £5,000
