Bids for funding for youth activities

South Gloucestershire Council has set up a new grants programme to encourage young people to participate in positive activities across South Gloucestershire. At the recent area forums, money was awarded to support work at a number of existing youth clubs in the area. The remaining money will be allocated at meetings later in the year.

Funding from the Positive Activities Subsidy Grants Programme is available for organisations working with young people aged 13 to 19 years old (or up to 25 years old for young people with learning difficulties and disabilities). Priority will be given to:

  • Organisations who can demonstrate that young people have been involved in the decision making process and in selecting activities
  • Applications from young people who may experience additional barriers to accessing positive activities. The council would like to encourage applications from young people from different equality groups
Quartet Community Foundation has been appointed by the Council to manage and administer fund. Applications forms can be downloaded from their web site. When applying for a grant you also need to include:
  • A copy of your organisation’s constitution or set of rules
  • A copy of your organisation’s most recent accounts or financial information
  • A list of the names and addresses of the management committee
  • A copy of your child protection policy if you work with children and young people
For further information and a full set of funding criteria please contact Quartet Community Foundation on 0117 989 7700 or visit
