Derbyshire - Youth Activity Grants

The last round of the Youth Action Grants came to an end in May 2020. However DCC is now making an extra £221,000 available, effectively extending this grants programme until the money has been allocated.

These grants are aimed at projects for children and young people aged 0 to 19, or up to the age of 25 if they have a disability.

The following are examples of the things they are looking to fund:

  • New activities such as short-term holiday programmes, and the costs involved
  • Developing the quality of existing provision via such things as staff training, new equipment, or improvements to buildings.
  • Expanding the range of existing provision through more equipment, or the creation of new activities.
  • Equipment and resources which support Derbyshire's recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Events, specialist training or other ways to encourage different groups of young people to attend activities.
  • Increasing attendance rates.

They want to be as responsive as they can. They are committed to making a decision for applications for funding over £10,000 within 6 weeks, and for all others they're committed to making a decision within 3 weeks.
