We're running Round 2 of the small grant scheme!

07 May 2021

Our small grants support children and young people to undertake creative projects about climate change.

Are you a school, non-profit organisation or community group in and around Glasgow working with children or young people up to the age of 26? 

After a successful small grant scheme in 2020 that funded eight organisations to produce creative output communicating the views of children and young people, we have decided to extend the programme this year. The purpose of the 2021 small grants is to broaden and diversify the voices of children and young people about the impacts of climate change on health and wellbeing, in anticipation of the COP26 UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow.  

In this round, funding is reserved for organisations which engage with young people who are traditionally marginalised by society. Priority will be given to groups led by those with protected characteristics under the Equality Act 2010 and groups who are not included in this legislation but who also face additional societal barriers. This may include groups such as disabled young people, BAME young people or LGBTQ+ young people (groups recognised by the Equality Act 2010), care experienced young people, refugee and asylum seekers and individuals experiencing homelessness. Non-profit organisations, schools and voluntary and community groups are eligible to apply.
