GwirVol Youth Led Grants Scheme

CAVO are pleased to announce that we are now taking applications for the 2017/18 funding of the Gwirvol Youth Led Grant. The aim of the GwirVol Youth Led Grants scheme is to support a range of small YOUTH VOLUNTEERING projects and activities, led and carried out by young people, with applications selected and recommended by a panel of young people aged 14-25. 

The GwirVol Youth Led Grants scheme will consider funding projects or one off events that deliver VOLUNTEERING OPPORTUNITIES with and for a diverse range of young people (aged 14-25). All youth volunteering activities involving young people between 14-25 are eligible to apply, however, priority will be given to the following:

  • See volunteering to be a benefit to the individual volunteer and the wider community of Ceredigion
  • Benefit at least 4 young people between 14-25 years old within the organisation
  • Young People with a physical or learning disability and living in Ceredigion
  • Young People from Disadvantaged Communities such as Black, Asian & Minority Ethnic Communities within Ceredigion

Requests up to £1000 will be considered for non-recurring (one off) projects with a key youth focus. All funding received must be spent according to the budget you have drawn up in your application and all funding must be spent by 31st March 2018.
