This fund has been set up to allow young people to apply for items or services that they would like to enhance their lives in some way up to the value of £250.
The criteria for this fund is very broad although young people must demonstrate how it will help them develop in some way, such as learning a new skill, accessing an activity, or buying musical
equipment. The most important thing is that the item or service has been chosen by the young person.
Young people have been involved in every stage of developing this fund and the they are the decision makers. All of the applications will be assessed by a panel of young people and they will
have the final say on whether the application is approved or unsuccessful. If it is unsuccessful, they will provide us with clear reasons why and we will relay these reasons back to the young person.
