The Youth Led Grants Fund is administered by CVSC on behalf of WCVA and the Welsh Government.
It is led and carried out by young people, and designed to support a range of small youth led volunteering projects and activities in the county of Conwy.
The fund will help to empower young people to develop their own initiatives; take an active role in their communities and involve/recruit young people to take part.
Grants of up to £1,000 are available to support volunteering or set up a volunteering activity.
Applications are selected and recommended by a panel of young people aged 14-25 and the applications are to be based within Conwy County
The current grant application round closed on 18th June 2021. Applicants will receive an email confirming receipt of their application and will be notified of the panel’s result/decision within 3 weeks of the closing date.
The aim of the Youth Led Grants scheme is to support small youth led projects across the County of Conwy, empowering young people to take an active role in their communities and involve/recruit young people to take part in volunteering projects and activities.
Applications are selected and recommended by a panel of young people aged 14-25. Grants of up to £1000 are available to support volunteering or set up a volunteering activity.
The youth panel are passionate about issues experienced by young people and want to make sure they fund the right projects. It has enabled CVSC to promote the value we feel comes from young volunteers and has developed the rapport even more with organisations who are passionate about promoting youth volunteering opportunities.
