National Youth Work Strategy 2020-25 Local and Thematic Events Fund

Please note this fund has now closed. 

Following the announcement of the Scottish Government’s commitment to the development of a refreshed national youth work strategy (2020-25), YouthLink Scotland would like to invite applications to the Local and Thematic Event Fund. 

The fund will enable local authorities and third sector youth work organisations to support the involvement of communities of geography and interest in the co-production process, with a particular emphasis on groups that may experience disadvantage and barriers to participation.

Youth work organisations (local authority and voluntary sector) and young people (sponsored by a youth work organisation) can apply to the fund to meet the costs of running any of the following events:

  • Co-production events exclusively with young people
  • Co-production events exclusively with youth work practitioners/volunteers
  • Co-production with both youth work practitioners/volunteers and young people

The total amount available in this fund is £18,000, each organisation can apply for costs of between £250 - £1,000 per event. Costs are capped at £25 per person attended the event and a minimum of 10 people must be in attendance at each event. 

Deadline for submitting applications is 15th July 2019
