School Grants to Support Social Action Projects – Opening Soon
New grant programme opening soon to support young people to access high quality social action opportunities in England.
The £54 million #iwill Fund is a joint investment from The National Lottery Community Fund and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) to support young people to access high quality social action opportunities.
As a match funder awarding grants on the behalf of the #iwill Fund, the Ormiston Trust is offering open grants to support the embedding of sustainable youth social action at scale in schools.
The Ormiston Trust’s #WeWill Social Action Grants fund looks to support this mission by funding projects which will have a meaningful social impact on an individual, school, local, national, and/or international level, are co-produced young people, and allow development for key skills.
There are four main funding areas within the programme:
- Environment and Climate Justice
- Wellbeing and Mental Health
- Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion
- Community-based Issues.
Applicants must be a primary or secondary school based in England.
Grants of up to £5,000 over a one-year period are available.
The fund opens to applications on 18 March 2022. The deadline for expressions of interest is 18 April 2022.
