£5m Youth Social Action Fund

I am calling on all youth groups and charities dealing with young people get in contact with the Cabinet Office and bid for funding from the £5m Youth Social Action Fund. The Money is intended to improve the quality, quantity and frequency of social action for young people aged 10-20.

I received a letter this week from the Cabinet Office asking me to highlight to my constituents that this funding is open for bidding until 29th July – I realise this is short notice and the Government could have push on this a lot earlier, however if you were not aware of it, please visit https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/youth-social-action-fund for more information.

It is vital that constituencies like Hyndburn are able to take advantage of these kinds of schemes and I urge any group who feels they may fill the criteria to come forward.
