There is some grant funding available to support youth activities.  The criteria for applications is as follows:

It can only be used to fund activities for young people under the age of 18.

The project must be ongoing.

The project must be based within the Kirklees Kirkburton ward, ie in Farnley Tyas, Flockton, Grange Moor, Highburton, Kirkburton, Shelley, Shepley, Stocksmoor or Thurstonland.

NB: The total budget is £971, which will need to be spread as fairly as possible amongst the local groups.  If your project needs a larger amount of money, please consider applying for a General Grant or a Small Annual Grant instead.  Full details of these schemes can be found on the Grant Schemes webpage:
