Humber Youth Association: Round 3 about to close

Round three of the Humberside Youth Association (HYA) Grant Fund is about to close!

Read more about HYA funding here.
The closing date for Round 3 is 29th September 2017 (at noon) so get applying now!

Are you a young person (18 – 24 year old)? Does your group work with or support young people (13 – 24-year-olds)? Do you have an activity that could develop young people’s physical, mental or spiritual capacities? If so, we want to hear from you!

HYA are seeking applications from individuals, groups or organisations that promote activity for the benefit of young people living in North East Lincolnshire. Activity that in particular helps educate them through leisure time activities (but not exclusively so) to develop their physical, mental and spiritual capacities so that they may grow as mature individuals

Successful Round 2 Applicants received part of  or all the funding they requested to support things such as a teenage parents support group; a campaign group to support and raise awareness of the effects of sexual abuse on young people; developing young people’s event management skills by running a family fun day; providing training to participants in a sports club to support and develop vulnerable young people; provide sports equipment bags to a sports club to allow young people unable to afford equipment to take part; provide musical resources for a young people’s community arts programme; providing traditional old fashioned games for use at community engagement events; and materials for a sensory based community engagement arts project.

Whilst all applications will be considered the Humberside Youth Association are particularly keen to fund innovative, non-traditional activities that engage those young people that don’t normally get involved with traditional youth groups and sports clubs.

As stated all applications are welcomed, but as there is always strong competition for limited funds those applicants that can show longer term impact rather than short term benefit are more likely to be successful.
