Funding: The #iwill Youth Social Action Fund

Currently, 4 in 10 young people regularly engage in social action – such as campaigning, fundraising, and volunteering.  The #iwill campaign has been launched to increase this to at least 6 in 10 10-20 year olds taking part, by the year 2020.

The Youth Social Action Fund is part of the #iwill campaign and offers grants to groups working with young people between the ages of 10 and 20 years old (or 25 for young people with disabilities) in Wiltshire and Swindon.

Grants of up to £5,000 are available to fund social action opportunities for young people. The fund is not to cover general youth club provision nor to fund general activities for young people.  The fund is to cover specific activities for young people aimed at developing their skills and confidence as volunteers in their community.
