New fund to support the aims of The Year of Young People 2018.
The Year of Young People 2018 aims to inspire Scotland through its young people, celebrating their achievements, valuing their contribution to communities and creating new opportunities for them to shine locally, nationally and globally. This new fund has been created to provide opportunities for local groups working with young people to facilitate informal education and learning opportunities that support this aim. Proposals must: engage young people aged 8 – 26 years; be co-designed with local young people to ensure they are fully involved in the development, management and delivery of the proposed activity; promote equality and be open and accessible to young people; demonstrate sustainability (whether in attracting other resources or in leaving a legacy). Next deadline for applications is 03 November 2017.
