Youth Development Grants are awarded to voluntary organisations working with 11-25 year olds, and are managed and awarded at a district level. I have joined a new Panel of three councillors and six young people (from the local Youth Forum) which will meet regularly to agree how the grants should be awarded in future -some £50,000 a year in total for Warwick district.
We held our first meeting at Kenilworth Youth & Community Centre this evening, and will meet again in March. It is quite a responsibility that the young people involved are being asked to take on – it will be interesting to see how well they deal with it.Leave a comment
