Posted: Tue, 06 Aug 2019 12:58
As part of the #iwill Campaign, the Co-op Foundation has announced new funding that will help young people advocate to improve community spaces that matter to them.
Applicants need to show that the project will benefit young people in areas of deprivation and that applicants understand their local area well.
Applications for grants of up to £35,000 are open until 12pm (noon) on Friday 20 September. They expect to make about eight grants in total.
Successful applicants will have the opportunity to re-apply for up to two years' further funding, to build on their learning and focus on sustaining their impact.
Young people engaged in your project should be aged between 10 and 20.
Grants can be used to cover any costs related to carrying out this project, included but not limited to:
● Salaries of staff involved in delivering or supporting the project
● Costs of advocacy activities, including appropriate incentives and rewards for young people to take part
● Proportionate contributions to organisational running costs required to support the delivery of the project.
