The Education Authority Youth Service are delighted to launch the Small Grants Programme for 2018-19.
The Small Grants Programme has been set-up to enable young people to administer grants to other young people. Last year’s youth panel who facilitated the programme must be commended for their hard work and commitment throughout the past year. The overarching aim of the Small Grants Programme is to strengthen the participation of young people. The Programme is a key action in the Department of Education’s policy document, “Priorities for Youth - improving young people’s lives through youth work” (2013). Groups can apply for funding of between £300 and £1500 to plan, develop and deliver projects within their youth organisations and/or local areas.
The Small Grants Programme is open to groups of young people aged up to 25 who are part of an Education Authority Youth Service registered / funded group. A group applying should be made up of no less than three young people. The closing date for applications is Friday 3 August 2018 at 4pm.
Further programme information, application form and guidance notes can be obtained below or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (028) 9056 6429 / (028) 90566952.
