The next round of the youth bank has been moved to
If you are unaware of the youth bank fund it is the replacement to the £250 that groups got from the youth registration scheme.
The Youth Bank provides a greater opportunity for Youth Service Providers to deliver effective non-formal and informal learning through better access to facilities and resources.
Voluntary groups can therefore use this money to help with insurance or rent for their buildings
Where equipment is linked to curriculum development this will help to improve the engagement of young people and in turn help to increase membership and attendance by young people.
Each club/project will be eligible to apply once a year and can be awarded money to spend either on Capital equipment or Revenue resources. Capital equipment is something that is permanent and will stay in the setting. Resources could be instructors, materials that you use or expenses incurred during the project.
