Due to high demand the second round of the #iwill Take Action Fund is now closed to new applications
Having fully distributed its initial £1.7million #iwill Take Action Fund, Virgin Money Foundation and the National Lottery Community Fund made available a further £500,000 to support youth-led social action projects in the North East of England throughout 2021.
The second round of the #iwill Take Action Fund provided grants of up to £50,000 under three themes:
- Crisis, Poverty and Isolation: funding for youth-led initiatives supporting local communities through the challenges that COVID has brought.
- Arts and Heritage: funding for youth-led initiatives creating new ways of delivering the arts during a period where social distancing has re-shaped our use of collective spaces in our communities.
- Community Justice: funding for youth-led projects that examine and act upon inequalities including equity and justice in our communities.
