Funded activities will develop non-cognitive abilities, collectively named 'essential life skills' these include but are not limited to:

  • Hard work, self-control, discipline, good time keeping.
  • Self-confidence, leadership and team working.
  • Honesty, integrity and engaged citizenship.
  • Attitude, respect and empathy.

There is no specific closing date for applications, but activities that receive funding must be completed on or before 31 August 2019. You should consider this within your planning.
