Applications are now open for the Alec Dickson Trust’s Grant Programme to support young people in the UK who want to use volunteering or community service to do brilliant things in their communities.
The Trust thinks that young people are amazing and that they have the potential to make the world a better place through volunteering.
The Trust helps help them put their ideas into action and run projects that benefit the lives of others – particularly the most marginalised and disadvantaged.
The fund volunteering projects run by young people under 30. If you’re thinking of applying, your project should:
- Be run by a young volunteer, or team of young volunteers
- Take place in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales
- Have a clear benefit to others in the wider community
- Most importantly, your project should encourage volunteering. The more volunteers you can get involved, the better!
- Grants of up to £500 to individuals or groups of young people aged 30 or under.
- The Trust welcomes applications of up to £500 from UK-based volunteering or community service projects, organised and run by people under 30 years old, which directly or indirectly respond to COVID-19.
