Youth Empowerment Scheme (YES) | Now Open for Applications

Deadline: 14 June 2024.

A new £400,000 fund to prevent serious violence by saying YES to brighter futures for young people across Merseyside is now live.

The Youth Empowerment Scheme (YES) has been unveiled by Merseyside’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Emily Spurrell, and the Merseyside Violence Reduction Partnership (MVRP) with the aim of unlocking the potential of thousands of young people across the region by providing safe, positive opportunities.

Community groups and charities can bid for a grant of between £5,000 and £25,000 to run projects and programmes over the next year which give young people the opportunity to gain valuable skills and qualifications, build their confidence and make positive decisions for the future.

Grassroots organisations which are interested in applying are invited to get advice and support to submit a bid at a drop-in Q&A event between 10 AM and 12 noon on 28 May 2024 at Kirkdale Community Fire Station on Derby Road.
