Youth Led Grants Programme 2022 to 2023

Apply for funding for youth projects.

Community organisations in Brighton & Hove can apply now to get between £500 and £5,000 to fund projects for young people aged 11 to19 (or up to 25 with special educational needs). 

We are seeking bids that offer positive activities for young people, using traditional youth work approaches.

These approaches will: 

  • Improve young people’s health and wellbeing
  • Increase opportunities for young people to participate in new and challenging experience 
  • Increase volunteering and work experience opportunities
  • Support with recovering from the impact of Covid-19

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 total funding available is £80,000 

Applying for funding 

If you have a project proposal you will need to choose a Lead Youth Provider (from the list below) who you can contact to discuss your proposed application.  

  • The Hangleton & Knoll Project 
  • The Trust for Developing Communities 
  • Brighton Youth Centre 
  • Allsorts Youth Project 
  • Black & Minority Ethnic Young People's Project 
  • Extratime

These groups can help with your application and will then submit it on your behalf. Their contact details can be found within the guidance document

If you would like to discuss your proposal to gain advice or support you will need to have contacted your chosen Lead Youth Provider by 1 June. They can then help you with your application and submit it to the council by the deadline of 8 June. 

Your project should aim to be ready to start from July 2022. 

For further information on how to apply, please register and read the guidance document online.  

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 worker from the organisation bidding for funding and their chosen Lead Youth provider.
