#iwill fund for young people, deadline 20 February 2020 (12 noon)

10 January 2020

Grants of £1,000 to £5,000 are available from the "#iwill" fund. Voluntary and community organisations can apply to run projects that last up to twelve months and provide campaigning, fundraising and/or volunteering opportunities for young people aged 10 to 20, or up to 25 for disabled people.


The funder will prioritise projects that:

  • Seek to increase participation from young people from less affluent social economic groups and young people who might not usually take part in volunteering, campaigning and fundraising activities.
  • Are working with young people aged 10 to 14.
  • Build the appetite of young people to continue with campaigning, fundraising and/or volunteering and leave a legacy of activity after the funding stops.
  • Involve young people in consultation, planning, delivery and evaluation.
  • Give young people the opportunity to learn new skills and develop their potential and confidence.
  • Give young people the platform to get their voice heard.
  • Can address the six principles of youth social action.

"This fund aims to develop opportunities rather than fund the ongoing costs of existing youth work. We are looking to fund organisations that involve young people in volunteering, campaigning and fundraising activities."


Please read the guidance notes before completing the application form.

The deadline for applications is 20 February 2020 (12 noon).
