Small community projects that benefit young people in East Hampshire can now apply for a grant of up to £250 from the East Hampshire Youth Council Money Pot. The deadline for the latest round of funding is Friday 10 July 2015 and local groups are being encouraged to get in touch now to make sure they don’t miss out.
All of the eligible grant applications received will be considered together and granted by members of the East Hampshire Youth Council. Josh Knight, Chair of East Hampshire Youth Council, said: “The youth council is proud to support groups that help other young people. If you are involved in an after school club, holiday scheme, youth club or any other group that could put £250 to good use, we’d like to hear from you.”
East Hampshire Youth Council is for young people aged 11-21 years who either live, learn or work across the district. It strives to give all young people a voice in their community and to make a real difference. East Hampshire District Council supports the youth council, recognising the importance and benefit of listening to children and young people to change, improve and introduce new services.
The previous grants helped to support a range of youth organisations including:
• Chawton Indoor Bowls Club – for a junior bowls tournament
• Deadwater Valley Trust – for equipment for junior rangers
• Herne Junior School – for a Wii console for its Breakfast Club
• Froxfield Youth Group – to go towards hall hire costs and equipment
