The #iwill Fund (Bereavement strand), funded by The National Lottery Community Fund and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) and managed by the Co-op Foundation, supports the aim of the #iwill campaign to make social action part of life for as many young people as possible. Youth social action involves activities that young people do to make a positive difference to others.
In this round, funders are interested in organisations who can draw on existing learning and deliver peer support and/or youth-led advocacy projects to help young people experiencing bereavement. Youth-led advocacy is a form of social action, where young people explore issues which are important to them and speak out on behalf of others.
Grants of up to £10,000 are available to UK charities and VCSEs who:
- plan to work in one of the 30% most deprived areas;
- will engage young people aged up to 20 years old;
- can support young people navigating sensitive emotional challenges;
- can deliver a peer support and/or youth-advocacy project;
- can apply learning from other bereavement support into your own work; and
- have a child safeguarding policy.
Funding can be used to cover any costs related to carrying out your project, including but not limited to:
- salaries of staff involved in delivering or supporting the project;
- costs of project activities;
- contributions to organisational running costs; and
- costs for learning and evaluation activities.
Deadline: Friday 3 April 2020, 12 noon
