The Lincolnshire Community Foundation still has £30,000 to give to projects in Greater Lincolnshire that help young people become active in their communities from the #iwill campaign.  Grants of between £1,000 and £5,000 are available.

The foundation says: “We’d like to support activities that encourage young people to get involved in social action (sports coaching, litter picking, debating, organising fun days, financial inclusion, savings schemes) where, above all, they should have fun, make friends, try new things and/or develop new skills that make them want to continue being involved.

“Incentives can be offered to young people (reward trips, voucher schemes, etc) to encourage them to get involved. Sports clubs/groups, theatre/drama groups, resident led organisations, or arts projects can apply to deliver sessions in schools or the local community to engage with young people and can be for one off events.

“However, the fund will not cover general running costs for existing activity or large capital costs.  Groups that have previously received funding are eligible to re-apply for further support.”

Closing dates for receipt of applications are on 1 June and 1 October 2018. The fund is open to registered charities, constituted community groups and other charitable organisations, but statutory organisations aren’t eligible to apply.

For further information, or to have a chat about a prospective application or to obtain an application form, please contact Sue Fortune, Grants Director at the Lincolnshire Community Foundation – t. 01529 305825 e. sue.lincolnshire@btconnect.com
