Are you interested in delivering open access youth work with young people aged 11 and over?
Communities and Families is opening a participatory budgeting grant programme to support such work in 2017-18. Applications will be assessed by a team of young people and Council officers before a voting process for young people. It will be the combination of these two processes that will determine who is awarded funding. The total budget available is £60,000 with a minimum award level of £500 and the maximum award level of £10,000. The work should benefit young people in Edinburgh and can be locally based or citywide work.
Application packs will be available on the Edinburgh Compact website from 6th February and the closing date will be 3pm on 24th February.
Briefings for applicants will be held at Waverley Court on
- Tuesday 7th February 2pm
- Tuesday 7th February 5.30pm
- Tuesday 14th February 5.30pm
Please book a place by contacting CF.Commissioning@edinburgh.gov.uk
