Children and young people can apply for small grants up to £1,500 for projects that explore culture, identity and heritage. Kensington and Chelsea is a highly diverse area. 99 different languages are spoken by children attending school in the borough.
Young K&C are encouraging children and young people to lead these projects, to produce and share knowledge and experiences about their communities in fun and enjoyable ways. We are looking for change making ideas and activities.
All you have to do is come up with a great idea for learning about the cultures, histories and diversity of local communities in Kensington and Chelsea. This could be through food, art, spoken word, history, music, children’s play, sport, photography, film, or any other activities.
Decisions will be made by our grants panel, including local young people.
