Each activity must run for 8 weeks, with each session lasting for 1 hour per week. Funding is available to help support coaching costs, equipment, facility hire or transport. The average grant size is around £20 per head with all activities identifying clear exit routes and sustainability options for the young people. For more information and to apply please visit the website.  The deadline to submit an application for autumn term delivery is Friday 28th May 2010.

Heritage Lottery Fund – Young Roots

Young Roots is a grant programme designed to engage young people aged 13-25 with their heritage.  Young Roots projects stem directly from the interest and ideas of young people, who are supported by youth and heritage organisations to develop skills, build confidence, and connect with their local communities.  The programme budget is £3000 to £25,000.

To receive a Young Roots grant, your project must;

  • relate to the varied heritage of the UK and provide new opportunities for a wider range of young people aged 13 to 25 to learn about their own and others’ heritage
  • allow young people to lead and take part in creative and engaging activities
  • develop partnerships between youth organisations and heritage organisations
  • create opportunities to celebrate young people’s achievements in the project and share their learning with the wider community.

Your project must also create new opportunities for young people to either:

  • volunteer in heritage; or gain skills in identifying, recording, interpreting or caring for heritage.

Young Roots is a rolling programme and there are no deadlines for applications. You will receive a decision on your application within 10 weeks from us receiving your fully filled-in application.  You should complete the pre-application enquiry form and full application online.
