Funding Opportunities

If you have a youth project idea and are finding it difficult to locate the right kind of funding or indeed need help to plan it, please contact the Diocesan Youth Officer.

Advice and support for the development of sustainable projects is readily available from both the Youth Officer, and from Sue Heil, Resources Support Officer, who can help with: 

1. planning a good project
2. finding the right contacts
3. accessing training to manage a successful project
4. finding the right kind of funding for you.

If you need small amounts of funding for one-off events or costs, try looking at some of the following organisations. Please be aware that careful planning and strategy is in many ways more important that simply locating and applying for a grant. To make best use of grant money and to make your project as effective as possible, please do speak to the Youth Officer.
