Restart Youth – new grant funding available

6th September 2021, 8:31am | By andrewjack |

A platform for young people to influence decision making, post Covid-19
Proposal deadline 22 September 2021

Thanks to National Lottery players, The National Lottery Community Fund has awarded the Blagrave Trust funding to support youth organisations through the Covid-19 crisis to give decision making power to young people who are currently being overlooked by services. Funding for the programme, called Restart Youth, is awarded and managed by the Blagrave Trust. find out more at Restart Youth – The Blagrave Trust | The Blagrave Trust

What is it?
Restart Youth aims to support Wiltshire youth organisations through the Covid-19 crisis to give
decision making power to young people who are being overlooked by mainstream services.
The strategy behind Restart Youth funding has been shaped by a group of 6 Young Advisers – young
people from the region who bring their experience of services. These are their priorities. All grant
making decisions will be made alongside them.

What’s the ambition?
The last 18 months have been a period of huge uncertainty and change. Young people have been
battling with the confusion over their educational futures and a changing employment landscape.
Every young person has been impacted and youth organisations will need to listen closely to young
people to ensure their support and services meet young people’s needs.

To apply

We ask all organisations interested to apply to tell us how young people were involved in the process, and provide an endorsement from them.
Please see our website for an application form and submit this, alongside a proposed project budget,
your safeguarding policy, and your constitution to grants@blagravetrust.org by September 22nd
2021.
