Small grants for CYP to create safer communities, deadline 9 November 2017

11 October 2017

The High Sheriff of West Yorkshire Fund is offering grants of £500 to £2,500 for organisations working across West Yorkshire to encourage young people aged 5-25 years to work together to prevent and combat crime to create safer communities. Applications are requested from existing projects or community groups looking for continuation funding, or projects wanting to expand and develop their current activities.

The idea for the project should either come from a young person (youth led), or where the project was developed by others (adult led) young people should have a significant role in its management and delivery.

Applications can be made via the online application form
