    Youth Action Fife is a Youth Local Action Group (YLAG) made up of young people aged 16-30 who live, work, or study in Rural Fife. All of the young people involved are volunteers who are passionate about making a difference to the lives of young people in Rural Communities. Youth Action Fife was set up in 2023 and is responsible for granting £20,000 of funding to enhance the lives of young people in Rural Fife and that furthers their eight priorities.

    The eight priorities are: 

    • Mental health and wellbeing 
    • Skills development, business, and enterprise 
    • Connection to nature 
    • Community - cross community and inter-generational projects 
    • Sustainability, environmentalism, and climate action 
    • Rural poverty (digital, access, transport, opportunities) 
    • Art, creativity, and culture 
    • Inclusion and under-represented groups

    They are looking for dynamic, innovative, and exciting new ideas and opportunities and want to invest in you and your ideas. They are assessing the quality of the idea not the application, so don’t worry about spelling or grammar (it is you they are investing in!).

    If you are an individual under 30 or a group that will positively impact young people in Rural Fife, the community, economy and/or environment, then they want to hear from you.

    They encourage you to apply for ideas that meet one or more of their eight priorities and to be very clear on how your idea meets the relevant criteria.

    Click here to find out more and register your interest in this funding. They will check the criteria, and if you meet it, they will invite you to apply for the funding. 

    The closing date for register interest is Sunday 03 December 2023.
