Camden Youth Social Action Grants of up to £5,000 available

Camden Youth Council (CYC) have an exciting opportunity for young people in Camden to make a real difference through social action - by offering grants of up to £5,000 to help tackle three areas of concern for local young people.

CYC's role is to represent and empower young people. The results from their Skills for Life survey showed that there are three areas young people want to do something about:

  • Young people's safety
  • The environment
  • Skills for life - CV writing, finding a job, managing finances and how to secure a home in the future.

CYC members would love to hear your ideas for improving the environment, making young people feel safer or helping young people learn important skills for life. They have £20,000 to help you turn your ideas about what needs changing into reality.

The three grant areas are aimed at young people aged 12 to 19, or up to 25 with a special educational need or disability, who live, work or go to school in Camden. All applications must be supported by a partner organisation such as your school or youth club. The deadline for submitting your application is midnight on Friday 1 September 2023.
