Youth Scotland’s Action Fund has been established to help youth groups and youth workers meet the needs of young people in response to the Covid-19 Coronavirus.
The global Covid-19 epidemic is now making a significant and unprecedented impact on people’s lives in communities throughout Scotland and the UK.
The needs of young people, youth workers and youth groups have changed in this past week as our way of life is disrupted in ways we could not have previously imagined.
Therefore, the purpose of this fund is to enable youth groups to purchase essential items that will enable them to continue working with young people throughout this period of social distancing and restrictions
It is a Micro Grant fund that is being supported by some key funders, STV Children’s Appeal and The Robertson Trust. They are reallocating existing funds to meet the emerging needs of youth groups. The maximum amount available per application is £500.
