A pause to think of all the people called Mark - known, unknown, family and friends.

Then - a number of funding opportunities for those who work with children and young people...

Funding to support the core costs of youth organisations
Not for profit youth organisations that support young people (aged 14 - 25) facing disadvantage can apply for grants of between 10,000 and £60,000 through the Paul Hamlyn Foundation Youth Fund. The funding is available for up to two-years and will support the core operating costs of the applicant organisation. Examples of what can be funded include part-funding the salary of a key individual. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and up to 30 awards a year will be granted through this fund.

Helping Hand: youth project funding from #iwill 

Go Think Big are offering 10 grants of up to £500 to young people who have good ideas for projects that use volunteering as a way of boosting their own skills and experience and those of their peers. The Helping Hand Youth Project Initiative encourages young people aged 15 - 24 to make a difference to their communities by getting involved in a wide range of activities such as campaigning, fundraising and volunteering. The deadline for applications is Sunday 31st December 2017. Read more HERE. 

Funding for projects that use the arts & media to address the concerns of children
Not-for-profit organisations in the UK that are working with children and young people using the arts and creative media can apply for funding of up to £50,000 through the Ragdoll Foundation's Open Grants Programme. The Ragdoll Foundation's vision is to support projects where the concerns of childhood can be heard. Organisations can apply for both one-off short-term projects and for projects lasting up to three years. Preference will be given to those projects which have a deep commitment to listening to children and allow the perceptions and feelings of children themselves to be better understood. The Foundations is mainly interested in applications that involve children during their early years, but appropriate projects for older children (up to 18 years) will also be considered. Whilst the Foundation will fund work in and around London, they will prioritise projects taking place elsewhere in the UK. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Read more HERE.
