New National Lottery fund for Young People launches
To mark the Scottish Government’s Year of Young People 2018, a new National Lottery fund has been launched to help young people #SparkAChange in their lives.
They're calling it the Year of the Young People National Lottery Fund, and it’ll offer funding between £3,000 and £10,000 to heritage, community and sports projects that are run for and by young people aged eight to 26.
A pot of £550,000 is available for projects that help young people change their lives for the better, by improving their health and wellbeing.
There are two deadlines for applications. The first is 30 April 2018 and the second is 18 June 2018 – if you want to deliver an activity during summer 2018 they'd recommend that you submit an application for the April deadline.
