We're getting focused on young people

Since launching in 2007 we've seen more and more young people wanting to make a difference. We've helped thousands of young people connect with their communities and have decided to get focused on this issue through helping people make real change, with community awards of up to £1,000.

We will still consider community based applications up until the end of December 2009 – but will be increasing the youth focus of the awards between now and then. If your project does not involve young people then do apply before end of December, though we cannot promise to be able to help everyone - we will try.

It's easy to apply for an award and it won't take long. Don't miss out - this is a great opportunity for you to make a positive change in your community.

Here’s what you need to do

  1. First, download our application guide which will give you all the information you need to fill in the application form. Also have a read of our criteria to ensure that your project is the kind of thing we support.

    Basically your idea needs to:

    • Reconnect young people with their community
    • Have long lasting effects – that will keep going once the money has been spent
    • Have real, tangible results that you can see
    • Demonstrate fresh, bold thinking, which is innovative enough to inspire others
  2. Now you need to create an account and then complete the application form.
  3. Finally, your application will be judged within a month and you can see if you were successful by logging back in to this site after the 10th of the following month.
