The overall focus of the #iwill Fund is supporting social action that draws on young people’s own lived experience in order to:
Connect young people to social action opportunities that lead to genuine community impact
Empower them through the difference this makes for themselves and their peers
The round focuses on peer-to-peer support to improve children’s wellbeing during the period in which they move from primary to secondary school. This might typically begin any time during School Years 5 or 6 and continue into Years 7 to 8. 20
It is expected that eight grants of up to £35,000 each will be awarded in this round, which is available for one year. Successful applicants will have the opportunity to re-apply for up to two years’ further funding, to build on their learning and focus on sustaining their impact. The funding can be used for any costs related to carrying out the project.
Applications are welcomed from organisations working in partnership, including approaches which involve both voluntary and public sectors such as a collaboration between a school and community organisation.
