Youth led grants programme

Community organisations in Brighton & Hove can apply now to get between £500 and £5000 to fund projects for young people aged 11-19 (or up to 25 with special educational needs).

This is the second and final round for this programme.

We are seeking bids that offer positive activities for young people, using traditional youth work approaches for young people aged between 11-19 (up to 25 if they have special educational needs), that will:

  • improve their mental health
  • will reduce the harm from young people’s alcohol and substance misuse 
  • increase volunteering and work experience opportunities
  • increase opportunities for young people to participate in new and challenging experiences

Young people came up with the criteria that the projects need to meet and will also lead on deciding how the funding is allocated.

The youth-led grants programme has £88,000 available this year and further funding will also be available next year.

Apply for funding

The deadline for applications is 3 April 2019. Projects can start from 1 June 2019. 

Work with a lead youth organisation (The Hangleton & Knoll Project, The Trust for Developing Communities, Brighton Youth Centre, Allsorts Youth Project, Black & Minority Ethnic Young People's Project or Extratime) who can help with the application.

Register and apply online using the lead youth organisation's contact details.

Answer the questions or create a short video to clearly show how the money will be used and who it will benefit.

All applications must be signed by three young people and a youth worker from the lead organisation.
