Witney Town Council is delighted to be opening its Youth Funding Grant to applications again.
This is an exciting opportunity for community and voluntary sector organisations, including existing organisations and those in the process of setting up.
Applications are open for one month until 1st September 2021. Successful submissions will be projects that have a measurable impact on key issues affecting our young people and that promote positive futures.
The Council will look favourably on those who create opportunities to be accessible to all young people, therefore applications demonstrating how they will extend their reach to young people who have not previously engaged with these opportunities are encouraged.
Applicants will need to meet criteria as set out in the application process and will also be required to report back on the success of the project for which funds have been granted. They will be notified of final decisions in mid-October.
Here is how the 2020 money was shared:
Got2B Community Interest Company was awarded £15,210.00 towards 2 detached/in house youth sessions and project work in partnership with the town’s secondary schools.
Home Start Oxford received £11,700.00 to improve youth services in Witney – supporting babies and preschool children and their parents, through a range of online groups.
Junior parkrun – £3120.00 was pledged towards setting up a Junior parkrun in the town. This project has been able to launch since the lifting of Covid- 19 restrictions.
