Funding for young people’s heritage projects in Yorkshire and the Humber
The Heritage Lottery Fund’s Young Roots programme offers grants of between £10,000 and £50,000 for young people to work with organisations to explore and share their heritage.
Young people can get as creative as they like in interpreting what heritage means to them – previous projects have organised masquerade balls, photography exhibitions, fashion shows and even a circus performance.
11-25 year olds wanting to apply should come up with a creative idea and join up with a heritage and youth organisation –anything from a local museum, school or football club.
Young Roots projects are about making a real difference to the lives of young people, helping them understand more about their favourite topics and to learn valuable skills along the way.
Katharine Boardman said: “Young Roots is all about helping young people to explore something that is important to them, from the town that they are from to their hobbies and favourite sports clubs. We’d love to hear from groups in Yorkshire and the Humber who want to know moreabout their favourite topic andhave inventive ways of bringing this story to life. Please get in touch with us today.”
