Apply for #iwill Fund grants to help young people support each other on the move up to secondary school

21 January 2020

Projects that empower young people to support each other as they move up to secondary school can now apply for grants from our #iwill Fund. 

Grants of up to £35,000 are available for organisations based in England that empower young people to lead youth social action projects that will help each other through their school transition, and improve their wellbeing. 

We plan to award eight grants in this round. Successful applicants may also be able to apply for continuation funding after one year. 

Watch our short video to find out if you’re eligible for funding. Alternatively, check out our guidance notes and apply here by 12pm (midday) on Monday 24 February. 

Youth social action 

We’ve been supporting youth social action projects through our #iwill Fund since 2017.

We’ve already invested £2m into tackling youth loneliness, including grants for the Songs of Belonging project from our Belong partner, Make Some Noise.
