Scotland Unltd has announced a unique opportunity and a new project for 11-21 year olds to receive support and funding for any ideas you may have that provides a positive impact for the local community.
The new project is Live Unltd which provides young people with the opportunity to create positive change in their communities. Support is provided by providing awards of up to £5000 to help develop your idea.
The financial support is also backed by support, advice and guidance from an Unltd team member which can include budgeting advice, networking opportunities, governance issues and working with volunteers.
The average award offered is £1500 with a maximum of £5000. If you are aged between 11-15 years old, awards are offered up to £500 as well as receiving additional support. Anyone under the age of 18 will need parental consent to undertake your project.
You can only apply for the funding if you are individual or an informal group, so this excludes funding applications on behalf of other groups such as Schools, Youth Clubs, Youth Centres, etc.
To apply for the Live Unltd funding you must meet some of the following criteria:
- Have a positive social impact on your community
- Demonstrate that you have identified a problem and can explain how your project would tackle the problem
- Tell Live Unltd what specific activities your project includes and what you hope to achieve
- Provide a learning experience or opportunity for you
If you are between the ages of 11-21 and have an idea for improving the Lochgelly area, or starting a project which would be of value to other youths or the community in general, why not apply for funding and get help turning your idea into a viable project.
