The final closing date for receipt of applications to this fund is on 1 October 2018 and the Lincolnshire Community Foundation is encouraging any groups that want to support young people to get involved in local volunteering aged 10 to 20 (or up to 25 if they have a disability) to apply for a grant of between £1,000 and £5,000.
The aim of the fund is to support activities that help young people take part in rewarding local social action projects that are fun, where they make new friends or try new things and that might also have a positive impact on the wider community. Projects that incentivise young people will be considered (reward trips/vouchers etc). Applicants don’t necessarily need to be youth groups, locally constituted groups who want to engage with young people in a meaningful way can apply. However, the fund will not cover running costs for existing activity or large capital costs.
Applicants will be notified within 4-6 weeks of the closing date and the fund is open to registered charities, constituted community groups and other charitable organisations, but statutory organisations aren’t eligible to apply.
