#iwill is a UK-wide campaign that aims to make social action part of life for as many 10 to 20 year-olds as possible by the year 2020.
Through collaboration and partnership it is spreading the word about the benefits of youth social action.
Grants offered are between £1,000 and £5,000. Grants should deliver social action opportunities for young people age 10 to 20 years old, or 25 for disabled people. Projects can be up to a year in duration.
Who can apply?
Organisations that promote youth activities:
- To increase participation in voluntary activity by young people from lower socio-economic groups, or people who might not usually take part in social action.
- Embed skills in young people.
- Demonstrate principles of great youth social action: enhancing young people’s social lives, opportunities to meet new people, longer term connections between volunteers and wider community.
Applicants must have a plan to measure and report positive changes resulting from a project, and demonstrate sustainability beyond the life of a grant.
