Youth Funds


Money for your ideas 

When the government did a survey about local facilities for young people in 2005, you said you would like to have a bigger say in what projects were given the go ahead. So to make sure that your voice is heard, the Youth Opportunity and Youth Capital Funds have been introduced. The two pots of money give you the opportunity to give your local facilities a bit of a makeover. All the money has got to be spent by March 2011.

Here are the best bits:

  • You come up with the ideas
  • Young people like you decide who gets what
  • Your local authority has got to spend Youth Fund money on projects for teenagers in your area
  • The money is there to help 13 -19 year olds in England just like you to:
  1. Take a lead role in improving youth facilities
  2. Enjoy your life and spare time
  3. Learn new skills that look great on a CV or college application form
