Loneliness can affect us at any time of life. Young people are no exception.
The Co-op Foundation is growing a UK-wide network of partners working together to prevent and tackle youth loneliness. The projects delivered by the network help young people form stronger connections in their community. While helping others, young people gain the skills to make the most of life’s opportunities and to cope with its challenges.
The Co-op Foundation in partnership with the #iwill campaign is inviting applications from charitable organisations working with young people aged 10-20 years. Organisations will be able to apply for up to £35,000 to deliver activities that engage young people in social action and tackle youth loneliness. One local project will be funded in each English region (9 grants of approx. £35,000 each). Within each region, a number of specific priority locations have been identified and one of these is Liverpool.
