Grants in the region of £600 are available for projects that provide volunteering opportunities for young people aged 14-25 to help their communities. Previous successful applications secured funds to:
create a community garden
hold a fund-raising event to raise money for a village hall
open up a footpath for local people and making it accessible for people with mobility disabilities
run a peer-led first aid course
train young volunteers.
The applications have to be written by young people. A panel of young people from Powys will assess the applications.
For more information contact Michiel Blees, Powys Volunteer Centre Officer on 01597 822191, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
