Deadline looms for groups to apply for #YES funding

Voluntary groups who work with children and young people in Wolverhampton are being encouraged to apply for funding to deliver activities, workshops and projects during the October half-term before the deadline this Friday (3 September).

The next round of funding is available for projects which meet any of the three priorities featured in the city’s Youth Engagement Strategy (#YES) – Being Healthy, Being Connected and Being You.

The activities will form part of the half-term holiday offer to the city’s children and young people and be featured on the Yo! Wolves website, www.yowolves.co.uk, which has provided young Wulfrunians and their families with plenty of events to keep them occupied during the summer holidays.

The application process is open until midday on Friday To find out more and download application forms, please visit www.youthengagementstrategy.co.uk.

Councillor Beverley Momenabadi, the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for Children and Young People said:

We are delighted to be able to announce a second round of #YES funding to ensure that youngsters have a range of activities to keep themselves occupied during the October half-term. I would encourage any voluntary organisation in Wolverhampton which provides services to young people and meet the application criteria to apply for this funding by midday on Friday.”

If you wish to submit an application form, or have any queries on the application process, please email #yes@wolverhampton.gov.uk.

The funding has been announced by the Youth Engagement Strategic Board, which comprises representatives from different youth voice groups in the city, such as Wolverhampton Youth Council, Culture & Diversity Group, HY5 (SEND Forum), Children in Care Council (CiCC) and the Local Youth Ambassador Groups.

The board, which was launched in November 2020, is supported by the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Coproduction and Youth Engagement Team and plays an integral role in ensuring that #YES is delivered in coproduction with young people and other voluntary organisations across the city.
