What Grant should you choose to apply for? 

 Roots Are you creating and establishing a youth work programme where there is currently none? This grant will be given in three parts, you would receive a sum of money each year for three years. Each year the amount of money you would receive would reduce to encourage your programme to be sustainable. 

Buds – This is for youth work programmes that are new and are established and led by the youth. This could include new clubs, outreach events and summer camps. 

Pruning– This grant is specifically for social action projects that serve in the interest of the local neighbourhood. This can include projects and groups that help to clear garden and create shared community spaces. 

Bunches– This is a grant for projects that include multiple groups working together. Encouraging unity and shared experience among church youth groups. Such projects can include camps, worship events and conferences.

Nurture– This is a grant that you can apply for all year round. Just as it is good to feed plants often, its great to have a fund available for training materials, resources, and unexpected costs. 


 Please note that you can only apply for one type of grant.
