Youth Led Grant Scheme

Small grants up to £1500 are available from PAVO to run projects that provide volunteering opportunities for young people aged 14-25 years.


The young people can be from an existing group or coming together to run a project of their own choosing. The application must be written by a young person.

Past projects have included organising fundraising events to support local charities, local environmental schemes, and improving facilities for older people. Examples of future projects could be around mental health, young carers, the elderly, health & wellbeing, art, life skills etc.
