Live UnLtd Summer of Social Action Campaign and are keen to receive applications from any young people who wants to set up their own community impact project.
We back people aged 11-21 with cash & support to launch projects that can change their world for the better
Projects can be around any topic/issues that young people are interested in from the arts and sport to the environment or bullying.
We have helped support inter-generational projects, start sports clubs, assist art and community projects and helped people start their own sustainable social enterprises. All projects and enterprises are run by the young people themselves.
Support is available in the form of cash awards starting at around £500 which is used to start projects and pay for equipment etc. You’ll also be given a dedicated Development Manager to help you with your project planning and budgeting. All of our support is free of charge.
