ES are asking that young people aged 14-24 years of age can apply for up to £1000 each round ( 3 rounds across the year) to work with other young people creating positive impactful projects and activities, focusing on positive narratives looking at what’s strong rather than what’s wrong.

This award will focus on diversionary activities and group projects for young people in their local community. This award will look at creating safe spaces such as a holiday club for young people with additional needs, a youth forum within your local area, a sports group, or a music group.
