Positive activities for young people – funding now available

Positive activities for young people – funding now available

Wiltshire’s 18 area boards are committed to supporting young people and local groups to come together to offer a range of activities for those aged 13-19. The activities are also for those aged up to 25 with special educational needs and/or disabilities.

Activities on offer include arts, music, sports, leisure and other after school activities where young people can make friends in a fun and safe environment.

The community area boards have funding available to provide these activities for young people. This funding has also helped to employ a community youth officer to:

  • Be the ‘go to’ person for youth issues and signpost young people to activities
  • Help to develop activities in the community by talking to young people
  • Supporting young people so that they have a voice in the community area boards
  • Start and manage local youth and community projects
  • Deliver reports to the LYN and area board on the needs, outcomes, priorities and objectives for local activities

If you are interested in delivering activities or have a great idea for a youth project – you can now sign up to your brand new local youth network and access funding.  Fill in this simple LYN Sign-up form to get the ball rolling.

The area board and local youth network will contact local providers to deliver activities. This will happen through grant funding or buying from an accredited provider catalogue.

Grants
