Youth Mayor Fund 2012 - applications now open!

Are you a young person aged 11 – 19 years (or up to 25 with additional needs)? Do you have an idea that could positively benefit young people in Lambeth?
The Youth Mayor Fund 2012 is now open for applications. 
Each year, the Youth Mayor with support from other youth council members allocates a total of £25,000 to projects for young people in Lambeth.  Applications can be made for any amount up to £5,000, and funds can be used for any type of project as long as it positively benefits young people and meets the funding criteria. Last year, the funds were allocated to projects delivering self esteem workshops, a drama project for disabled young people, teenage pregnancy awareness workshops, club facilities and dance therapy.
This year the Youth Council want to fund projects that help to achieve their collective aims:
  • Offering learning opportunities for young peop  
  • Improving relationships with the older generation  
  • Helping young people feel safer
