Youth Activity Grants now on offer

Published: 14 August 2020

Community groups, clubs and charities that work with young people are being invited by us to apply for a share of £220,000.

Up for grabs are grants for projects for young people aged from birth up to 19, or up to 25 if they have a disability. There’s no set amount of money that can be applied for.

Successful applicants, who will need to be a properly constituted group, will need to show that they can meet all or some of the following:

  • support young people’s physical, mental and emotional development
  • help young people to understand how to protect themselves from harm and neglect
  • help young people to get more personal satisfaction out of their education, training and recreation time
  • enable young people to make a contribution to society through volunteering programmes
  • help young people to become socially responsible and economically independent adults

Derbyshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Young People, Councillor Alex Dale said:

“We are keen to hear from groups across the county about their plans to help young people this summer.

“If you’re involved with a community group, club or charity in Derbyshire a Youth Activity Grant could be just the helping hand you need.

“The process is quick and simple and if you apply now we’ll aim to give you a decision within 3 weeks, or within 6 weeks if you apply for £10,000 or more.”

The Youth Activity Grants are available until the end of the year, or until all the money has been allocated.
