Team London and Thrive LDN Small Grants

Deadline: 
Monday, 12 November 2018 - 12:00pm

Grants of between £5,000 - £10,000 are available to run projects which encourage young Londoners to volunteer or take part in social action. The majority of young participants must be new to volunteering and come from groups that are disproportionately affected by mental health.

The projects can focus on any area of volunteering or social action such as sports, arts, media, environment, inter-generational, music, etc., but should also encourage good mental health and wellbeing. The majority of young participants will be new to volunteering and will come from groups that are disproportionately affected by mental health, such as those within the criminal justice system or young refugees or asylum seekers.

The Team London and Thrive LDN Small Grants will fund projects which: 

  • Work with 10 – 20 year olds on volunteering and/or social action projects which promote wellbeing and emotional resilience. 
  • Demonstrate how volunteering and/or social action positively impacts on young people’s wellbeing and emotional resilience. 
  • Work with young people from one or more of the following target groups:
  1. Looked after children (or at risk of being)
  2. Young carers
  3. Young people in the youth justice system (or at risk of being)
  4. Young homeless people (or at risk of being)
  5. Refugee and asylum seeking young people
  6. Young people with learning disabilities
  7. NEETs (not in employment, education or training)
  8. Vulnerable young people (or at risk of being)
