Early Help 11-19/24 Grants 2014/15 is now open
Nearly £50,000 of funding is being made available to groups and organisations supporting young people in Melton. The fund will be known as Early Help Grants 11 -19/24. The name reflects the age range which the fund supports; 11 -19 and up to 24 for young people with additional needs. The purpose of the fund is to secure high quality youth work provision that improves young people’s well-being and leads to a reduction in demand for more specialist services. More »
The funding is available for one year only from April 2014 until the end of March 2015, and is intended for use by the Voluntary and Community Sector. The types of projects that may be funded include activities aimed at personal and social development of young people, outdoor pursuits, trips and sports, environmental projects, intergenerational projects or activities which foster positive emotional well-being.
