The RBWM Youth Ambassadors are running the Youth Voice Youth Choice Funding Scheme competition once again. This is a wonderful opportunity to be in with a chance to win money to help fund local youth projects.
There are four category slots -
Schools - Youth Groups - Charities - Individuals
The maximum prize is £1,500 for groups and £500 for individuals. There is a total fund of £10,000 with two winners in each category.
The competition is now open and we are accepting applications until 5pm Thursday 25th February, so now is the time for young people to apply for any project that will benefit them and/or people in their community. Please see the attached poster with further details about dates.
I would encourage young people to apply for funding within any relevant category, for example if a young person attends a youth group: cubs, kayak club, music group, youth club or any other group, they could apply in that category where all attendees would benefit from a project.
If a person has been working on a personal project – sports, music, etc, they could benefit from the cash to support their chosen individual hobby.
If a registered charity does work either direct or indirect work with young people in the RBWM I’d encourage them to apply with the support of the young people they work with.
If you would like further information I am more than happy to talk to young people or the named adult on the application form to explain the process.
