Welcome to Youth Take Over Day 2021. This year our theme is Youth. It is advised that organisations read this guidance before writing and submitting their applications.
Following last year’s success of our virtual Youth Take Over Day where students were given the opportunity to present a project to a panel of judges, we’d like to turn the tables and put students on the other side of the table this year. We are asking organisations to apply for funding for projects that will help young people. Young people participating on the day will be given the opportunity to sit on the funding panel and decide in collaboration with East Suffolk Council which projects will receive funding.
Examples of the type of projects this fund:
These examples are given as a guide and are not exhaustive.
It is anticipated that a typical funding application will be for no more than £1,500.
All funding applications must demonstrate how the planned project or activity will address the topic of Youth.
Applications will be independently appraised by East Suffolk Council’s Funding and Communities’ Team and will be presented to the Panel of students on 19 November.
All applicants will be notified of the decision by email and payment will be made via a BACS transfer into the nominated bank account upon submission of a completed Grant Agreement Form.
Grants through the Youth Take Over Day Grant are restricted funds and should be spent only on the items/purpose detailed in the application form and within 12 months of the date of the Grant Approval Letter. If the grant is not spent on the approved purposes or there is an under spend, East Suffolk Council has the authority to reclaim part or all of the grant.
An evaluation and monitoring form will be sent out to the applicant to complete after the project has ended to ascertain the impact that the project/activity had. Please keep copies of receipts and invoices related to the project/activity.
The closing date for Youth Take Over Day 2021 grant applications is Friday 5 November 2021
