A couple of things to note:
Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have temporarily broadened the types of applications we accept. Applications are not limited to one specific project and a request can be made for organisational running costs. We are committed to supporting voluntary groups with these types of grants.
We want to fund organisations who can tell us why they are best placed to deliver their work, so applicants must be able to tell us about:

  • Their well-established links with young people
  • The skills and expertise they have for the work they are requesting funding for
  • Their track record delivering the work they are requesting funding for. This is especially important for applicants for our Main Grants Programme
  • How they work alongside other organisations in their local community 

If you or any of the organisations you support have any questions about submitting an application, please contact us and we will be happy to help.
