Big Lottery Fund Scotland’s Young Start fund reopened for applications on Thursday 30th August.
Young Start’s aim remains to fund activity helping children and young people aged 8 – 24 years old to become more confident and play an active part in realising their own potential.
Between £10,000 – £100,000 is available to voluntary and community sector organisations for up to 3 years. (Schools, public sector organisations and individuals will not be eligible.) The fund will support work where children and young people:
- have better physical, mental and emotional wellbeing
- have better connections with the wider community
- have access to new skills and training opportunities which will help them start a new job or business
Big Lottery Fund Scotland are looking to fund work that is people-led, strength-based and connected, particularly being led by young people, tapping into their strengths and interests, and fitting in with other provision, skills and assets locally.
Groups interested in applying should contact Big Lottery Fund Scotland for an informal discussion beforehand.
To arrange a discussion from Thursday 30th August, please contact Big Lottery Fund Scotland by phone: 0300 123 7110, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
