Open Now for Round 2!
Foundation Derbyshire is running the Youth Social Action Fund in Derbyshire. The fund has been developed as part of the #iwill campaign, which aims to increase youth volunteering by 50% by 2020 and is being delivered by many community foundations across England.
The money for this fund has been provided by Step Up to Serve, The Big Lottery and the Government.
Foundation Derbyshire will run this programme until at least March 2019. The amount available to give out will be dependant on how much ‘Match Funding’ the Foundation can raise from their bank of supporters and local philanthropists.The organisation is are aiming to have between £30 – £60K per annum to distribute.
The fund is looking to engage more young people in volunteering opportunities. These volunteer activities should get young people more involved in their local communities and ultimately make their communities better places to live.
The project should run regularly for a full year so that the volunteering becomes embedded in their lives – where possible.
