  • Comic Relief - #iwill Youth Social Action Fund

    Created: 12/04/2017

    Comic Relief has announced that £2.4 million of funding has been made available through the #iwill Youth Social Action Fund.

    #iwill is a UK-wide campaign aiming to get 6 out of 10 young people involved in social action like campaigning, fundraising and volunteering, in communities across the UK by 2020.

    The programme will fund projects to seek out young people and encourage those from disadvantaged backgrounds to participate in and lead youth social action.

    Projects will need to demonstrate effective ways to build relationships with ‘reluctant' young people in their own community and demonstrate how they will engage those people in creative, innovative and meaningful social action.

    The fund will offer grants of up to £150,000 over up to three years (with a maximum of £50,000 per year). 

    The deadline for applications is 12 o'clock on Friday 12 May 2017.
