YOUTH LED GRANT MONEY - You can apply for up to £1,000

The purpose of the Youth Led Grant Scheme is to fund exciting and worthwhile projects that create more volunteering opportunities for young people aged 14-25 within the Merthyr Tydfil area.

The panel assessing applications will consist of young people who are already part of the Merthyr Tydfil Borough Wide Youth Forum (MTBWYF).  The whole process from marketing the grant scheme to assessing grant applications will be led by the young people sitting on the panel.

Please note that the Youth Led Grants will be expected to fund projects which contribute towards the seven Well-being of Future Generations Act (2015) goals. (Please note: not all projects will have to deliver against all seven goals).

  1. A Prosperous Wales
  2. A Resilient Wales
  3. A More Equal Wales
  4. A Healthier Wales
  5. A Wales of Cohesive Communities
  6. A Wales of Vibrant Culture and Thriving Welsh Language
  7. A Globally Responsible Wales

The funding will only be allocated to projects that will be led by young people aged 14-25 and it will be the responsibility of the young people, with the help of the organisation to fill in the application form. 

If you or the young people involved in your organisation can think of a project that would be of benefit to themselves and the community bearing in mind the 7 goals listed above, then please contact for an application form.

The closing date for applications is Friday 20th October.
