Year of Young People National Lottery Fund

Increasing economic and social wellbeing through the historic environment.

Organisation: National Lottery Partners (HLF funded)
Project title: Year of Young People National Lottery Fund

To mark Scotland’s 2018 Year of Young People in Scotland, National Lottery partners have launched the Year of Young People National Lottery Fund to inspire young people to lead active lives and encourage positive mental health. HLF, Big Lottery Fund and Sport Scotland, along with Spirit of 2012 Trust have created this fund to award grants for heritage, community and sports projects focusing on young people in Scotland. This offers funding of between £3,000 and £10,000 to heritage, community and sports projects that are run for and by young people aged eight to 26 years old and that improve their health and wellbeing. This grant programme has actively embraced the ethos of youth involvement and participation, with young people involved in the development of the guidance and decision making. For example, £10,000 has been awarded to the YOYP Between the Lines project in Dundee – this project will involve 20 young people over 12 months, delivering a series of workshops chosen by young people focusing on learning about mental health, support networks available and ways to cope with and improve mental health.
