Deadline: 30 October 2017

The Young UnLtd is seeking applications for its Spaces 4 Change Programme that will find, fund, support and connect young people aged 16-24 to start and run social ventures that unlock the potential of unused or under-utilised spaces for the benefit of the local community, especially other young people.
