Projects for Young People

Are you working to improve the lives of young people aged up to 24 years old? Do you have an idea to give young people new skills and self-confidence? Perhaps getting them into training, work or more involved in their community? Alternatively, you may have a project to increase young people's resilience? If so, you could qualify for a grant from our Projects for Young People programme.

Grants of up to £25,000 per year for up to two years are available for charities, voluntary groups, schools, colleges, and Community Interest Companies. Your work must be planned for Ealing, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Slough, Spelthorne, Richmond, Runnymede, Windsor and Maidenhead or South Bucks. To apply, your group must have a constitution and a bank account that needs two signatures. Before commencing any grant application you must read through our Tips document, Projects for Young People Guidance and Criteria and Grant Making Policy.
