South Norfolk YAB

The South Norfolk Youth Advisory Board is a body of young people and professionals that meet on a regular basis. The aim of the YAB is to identify issues that impact on young people and to play a strategic role in meeting these needs through the commissioning of services, lobbying on behalf of young people and influencing decision makers.

Funds for Young People Living in South Norfolk

Applications can only be made using the specific form which can be found online.

Applications will be confirmed via email, along with details of the next stage of the process.


Individual Young People’s Fund

The Fund is open to individuals aged between 11 and 25 years. Applications will preferably include the name of a supporting adult - for example a parent, tutor, employer or youth worker. (Applicants under the age of 18 must provide this information).

Individuals can apply for grants of up to £500 to cover items such as uniforms or suitable footwear for work, tools or equipment to enable them to enter vocational training or work, or transport costs such as a season card which will enable travel to a place of training or work. The grant may also cover school uniforms and footwear.  We would expect the majority of this fund to be spent on educational, training and employment items and opportunities.

Individuals can also receive support for activities which aid their personal development, including sports clothing or equipment, musical instruments or a one-off special training or performance opportunity. Expensive items such as a computer may be considered where it can be shown that a lack of access is preventing progression in education, work or in training.

Grants will be provided on a one-off basis to help with an immediate situation that is preventing the individual from achieving their aims and aspirations (on-going costs are not eligible for support).

The applicant must demonstrate that this money cannot be obtained through any other means, or to the time scale required.

Applications can only be made using the specific form which can be found online.

For Fund enquiries please contact Jenny Bevan, Grants Manager on 01603 623958 or email.
