If you’re aged 18-30 and are setting up a project where you might need funding, then why not talk to the IGNITE team at VANEL. They’re here to work closely with you to get funding applications done! A number of younger people have now worked with the IGNITE team to make grant applications and have been successful. If you don’t ask, we can’t help!
Earlier in the year, IGNITE supported 16-year-old Uniformed Services student, Lachlan, with his Family Fun Day. With the help of IGNITE, Lachlan was successful in obtaining funding from the Humber Youth Association. You can read about Lachlan’s fun day here. What’s more, 16-year-old IGNITE Project Leader was successful in applying for funding for her IGNITE campaign, ‘Project V’. Project V is an online campaign which aims to support victims of sexual assault and rape by signposting them to organisations which can offer them help and support. You can find out more about Project V by visiting here.
VANEL can also offer simple grant searches using our grant database to groups in Membership. Contact Karl Elliott for information or to arrange help.
We can also offer a Critical Friend service to help you get your funding applications right. It’s still you preparing your bids and getting the application submitted, but we can look it over, help with ideas and wording and generally help you fine tune it before submission. Fees will apply.
