Project and activity fund for youth centres and clubs

This fund is to support community-based youth centres and clubs to:

  • deliver a range of positive activities for young people
  • help with Covid-19 recovery plans

This funds between 80% to 100% of total project costs.

We offer from £500 to £5,000 to support the council deliver the priorities set out in our Children, Young People and Families Plan 2020 to 2023.

As we expect demand for funding to be high, we may award you less funding than you applied for.
