Grants up to £5000 for small community groups and voluntary organisations supporting young people (aged 10-25) in specific areas of Glasgow.
Youth Scotland are launching Glas-glow Up, a new fundraising opportunity devised by a team of Young Grantmakers and funded by the National Lottery Community Fund.
The aim of Glas-glow Up is to reduce anti-social behaviour and enable the involvement of young people in youth groups and programmes, in order to help young people to develop and inspire changes in their lives. Glas-glow Up is open to charities, voluntary or community organisations and not-for-profit companies that are based in a specific geographical area in Glasgow that plan to run projects that support young people aged 10 – 25. Organisations can apply for between £2000 and £5000 and should plan to spend the grant within six to nine months of receiving it.
Glas-glow Up will support projects that improve one or more of the following areas in Glasgow (identified by the Young Grantmakers as areas affected by anti-social behaviour):
Bridgeton, Dalmarnock, Calton, Parkhead, Dennistoun, Camlachie, Shettleston, Tollcross, Baillieston, Mount Vernon, Provanhill, Possil Park, Barmulloch, Rob Royston, Milnbank, Rutherglen, Clydesdale, Muirhead, Garrowhill, Easterhouse, Garthamlock, Craigend, Cranhill, Riddrie, Hogganfield, Cardowan, Stepps, Milleston, Springburn, Glasgow City, Balornock, Milton, Ruchill, North Kelvin, Kelvinside, Partick, Govan, Craigton, Mosspack, Bellahouston, Govanhill, Pollokshields, Battlefield, Shawlands, and Pollokshaws.
