|December 17, 2012||Filled under East Riding of Yorkshire Council, Funding, Youth Activities|
THE COUNCIL YOUTH SUPPORT SERVICE is keen to develop and expand the amount of positive activity available to young people in the East Riding.
Following a one-off donation by arvato government services, the Youth Support Service is able to offer small grants to voluntary, not-for-profit organisations who want to provide more activities for young people aged 5 to 19 years of age.
Applicants could be established clubs or a new group which needs funds to buy new equipment, help with running costs, staffing, etc.
There is £63,000 available to two bands of applicant:
- Band A is up to £2,500 for individual organisations;
- Band B is up to £5,000 for organisations that operate countywide, or in more than one location.
It is hoped the fund will be able to support a variety of organisations that must be able to spend the grant by 31st March 2014.
Application packs are now available and the deadline for completed application forms to be received is 1st February 2013. Late bids will not be accepted. All applications will be considered by a panel on 8th February 2013.
Please note that funding will not be available to voluntary organisations that are in receipt of grant aid through the ERVAS sports club scheme.
