COP 26 - How Renfrewshire's organisations are tackling climate change
As COP26 unfolds on our doorstep in Glasgow, we thought we would take the opportunity to showcase local action, and highlight some of our brilliant members who are tackling climate change year round.
First up we're hearing from Peter Livingstone of Eadha Enterprises who's work as a social enterprise now take them well beyond Renfrewshire's borders.
Funding to Enable Disadvantaged Young People Reach their Potential
Registered charities (including Schools that are registered as charities for young people with disabilities) that work with disadvantaged children under the age of 25 can apply for funding of up to £10,000 through the Ironmongers Company's grants programme.
Projects must meet all of the following criteria:
- For children and young people under the age of 25 who are disadvantaged
- Consist of educational activities that develop learning, motivation and skills
- Have clear aims and objectives to be met within a planned timescale
- Are within the UK
The Company is particularly interested in enabling primary age children to develop a strong foundation for the future. Projects could, for example: support special educational needs, address behavioural problems, promote citizenship, parenting or life skills.
Preference will be given to projects piloting new approaches where the outcomes will be disseminated to a wider audience.
The next deadline for applications is the 15 December 2021.
Funding to Help Children & Young People Make Good Lifestyle Choices
Insurance Company, Ansvar, is making funding available to registered charities in the UK and Ireland whose work specifically focuses on educating children and young people about making good lifestyle choices.
The Ansvar Donations Programme will award three charities with grants of £15,000 a year for three years, totalling £45,000 for new or existing projects that benefit children and young people. This could include activities which teach children about the effects of drugs and alcohol, how to make responsible choices and stay safe, or promote exercise, mental wellbeing or healthy eating.
The deadline for applications is 11:59pm on the 12 November 2021.
