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, individuals and targeted groups. 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 Wednesday 13th November 2019 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.

The Youth Ambassadors 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 they attend a targeted session or fall into a targeted group, they could apply for a project surrounding that such as children in care or learning disability or similarly. 

Or 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.
