Applications are open now to fund ‘A Year of Opportunities’ for 11 to 25 year olds in London and Essex.
The Jack Petchey Foundation has launched a new round of Open Grants for organisations to attract more young people into their services and increase the services they can provide.
They will be offering smaller grants of £3,000 to 5,000 and larger grants of up to £20,000.
ReIgnite Grants could be for re-engaging young people previously involved in activities who have lost contact / confidence / ability to be involved as a result of the pandemic, and/or, to encourage new members who may not previously have been aware of / or involved in youth activity.
They could also enable youth organisations to plan taster sessions, extra sessions throughout the holidays in 2022 or make adaptations to support more young people and provide great service for increased demand.
The key outcomes the Foundation seeks to achieve for the young people that are involved are:
- Increased skills or knowledge
- Feeling heard/valued/recognised
- Increased resilience/wellbeing
- Growth in self-belief/confidence
To apply, organisations must be successfully operating the Jack Petchey Achievement Award scheme.
The closing date for applications is 29 October 2021.
