Youth Social Action Fund Grant Programme

CURRENTLY CLOSED to new applicants. Please check this page for further updates. 

The Youth Social Action Fund will open for the second round of applications, on Monday 15th May at 9am.

The fund is aimed at increasing volunteering, fundraising and campaigning amongst people aged between 10 and 20, and up to 25 for young people with disabilities.

We are encouraging grant applications for £5,000 from community groups, charitable organisations including social enterprises and community interest companies (CIC) working in England. Projects must engage young people in ongoing regular volunteering or demonstrate how another youth-led method will be as effective at engaging young people in social action. Applications will be invited from Monday 15th May to 5pm, Monday 31st July. The application form and supporting documents will be available to download on the Worcestershire Community Foundation website from this date.

Worcestershire Community Fund are working with Community First to administer the grants and provide advice.

To find out more about the fund and criteria, please see the #iwill website http://www.iwill.org.uk/ and see their Generation Change document which explains in more detail about the principles of youth social action. If you have questions about the fund or applying, please email grants@comfirst.org.uk and we will respond as soon as possible. You can watch a video about projects helping to give young people stronger connections in their communities, here. Video courtesy of Co-op Foundation.
