Be part of our #iwill Youth Grants Panel

The #iwill Fund looks to support social action activities that create opportunities for young people aged 10-20 to develop their potential and their capacity to significantly contribute to their community.

Social action involves activities such as campaigning, fundraising and volunteering and has huge potential to create enjoyable opportunities and skills development for young people, and in turn benefit the local people and places. Grants of up to £10,000 will be awarded to groups for projects lasting up to a year; with the aim of funding both groups that are well established but also those that are new and innovative, especially those that can reach young people that are new to social action.

As part of this we will be putting together a youth panel made up of 18-21 year olds.

This will be an exciting opportunity for them to participate in a Youth Panel which will be focused on distributing a grant pot towards youth-led projects across Northamptonshire that seek to increase youth-led social action projects that create positive change in local communities and gain insight & experience into grant giving. There will be a training session in evaluating grants assessments, prior to the panel.

The main task of the Panel will be to evaluate applications and select the awardees. This panel will take place in person, in January 2023 (exact date & venue TBC) and will be assisted by Northamptonshire Community Foundation.

We will only have spaces for a limited number of people. If you know a young person between 18-21 from your group who would be interested, please could you get them to email San-D Godoy Messenger: and Alex Rex  with :

  • A little bit about themselves

  • Have they have been involved in youth social action and if so, how?

  • Why they would like to take part in the #iwillFund panel

If they could please send this to us by Friday 11th November (or want to find out more information), we will then be making decisions after that.
