Youth grants

14th November 2017, 11:34am | By Steve |

The area boards are committed to providing revenue grant funding for those wishing to provide postive activities for 13-19 year olds and those aged up to 25 with special educational needs and/or disabilities. Projects delivered in the past include arts, music, sports, leisure and other after school activities where young people can make friends in a fun and safe environment.

What is the application process?

Applications will be first considered by the Local Youth Network (LYN), comprising of young people and supporting members such as the Local Youth Facilitator (LYF) and councillors. Decisions made by the LYN are ratified by councillors at each area board meeting. For details of the next meeting please follow the links under ‘Area board meeting dates’.

When you have submitted your application, the Local Youth Facilitator will review it. If there is anything wrong or missing from the application, the LYF will explain and send the application back for revision.

Once we receive your grant we will email you to let you know when your application will be heard. Although in most cases you will find out on the night, we will email you to let you know whether your application was successful or not. If your application is approved, we will email you to arrange payment and seek agreement to the terms and conditions.

How can I apply?

All applications must be completed online. If you need computer support to help you to complete the form please call Customer Services on 0300 456 0100 and ask to be paired with a Digital Champion from the Wiltshire Online service.

Check if your project is eligible and start your application
