#iwill Fund (National)
The #iwill fund has huge potential to create enjoyable opportunities and skills development for young people, benefitting local people and places.
The #iwillFund supports social action activities that create opportunities for young people aged 10-20 to develop their potential and their capacity to significantly contribute to their community. Social action involves activities such as campaigning, fundraising and volunteering. It has huge potential to create enjoyable opportunities and skills development for young people, and in turn benefit the local people and places. The fund also recognises that skills development and confidence building is a key part of getting young people involved in their local community.
The definition of young people is between 10 and 20, and up to 25 for disabled young people.
Step Up To Serve, The National Lottery Community Fund and the Government Office for Civil Society have invested £2million this year to fund groups delivering youth social action opportunities.
