Cardiff Youth Led Grants

The Youth-Led Grant awards are small grants allocated by the youth-led grant panel, to other young people for community action projects that encourage and create opportunities for more young people to get into volunteering. A total of £6,000 is available, where each Youth-led project can be awarded a grant of up to £1,500.

Want to join our youth-led panel?

We are looking for 14-25 year-olds to join our Youth-Led Grant Panel! This is a great opportunity to get involved and have your say on what youth-led projects are funded in your area.

As a panelist, you will learn from your fellow members and socialise as you review funding applications from young people and decide which projects to sponsor. You will then have the opportunity to see the benefits of this funding by liaising with the projects over the course of the year, and review the successes of each when they submit their end of project reports. If you have any questions about joining the YLG Panel, please email [email protected]

Applications for 2024-2025 are now closed!
