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
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.
