  • Greenspace Scotland - Young Placechangers Ideas Funds

    Created: 26/10/2018

    The Young Placechangers Ideas Fund supports youth groups to engage with others in their communities to take action to improve the environmental quality, biodiversity, playability and vibrancy of neighbourhoods.

    Young Placechangers are young people between the ages of 12-25 who want to change their local environment for the better- this could be their local greenspace, street, community centre garden, whole village, neighbourhood or town. The Young Placechangers will lead community placemaking projects in their local communities. Up to £3,000 is available to each project.

    Groups can apply for:

    • Seed corn funding - to engage with the wider community and develop their ideas; or
    • Ideas funding- to involve their local community to further develop their idea and deliver changes on the ground such as the physical improvement of spaces, event programmes and sessional staff/youth worker costs.

    Next deadline: 27 November 2018
