What sort of projects will YouCan support?

We will support any ideas that will make a difference in your community or help unlock your own potential. It could be relatively small such as starting a youth football team, setting up support groups or buying equipment to start a local computer group. Successful applicants have included cheer leading teams for young girls in Wolverhampton, an autism support group in Leamington and a 'Men in Sheds' club in Cirencester. The grant is up to £300 maximum to pay for some or all of your project costs. When you apply you’ll need to tell us as much as you can about how you’ll use the money and why it’s needed, including a break down of all the costs. YouCan will expect projects to only use the funds to purchase or set up things directly related to the project. Further details can be found within our criteria on apply now page.
