Islington Giving's 2020 Young Grant-Makers launch open call

22 June 2020

- This Call is now closed -

Islington Giving has been working with a third group of Young Grant-Makers to design an open funding programme for local organisations. Here is their call for proposals. 


We are a group of local young people aged 16-22 who became Islington Giving’s third group of Young Grant Makers in March 2020. We want to make a difference locally, hoping to have a knock-on effect on the future. We have joined Islington Giving to make grant-decisions that will benefit Islington’s young people.  


Do you work with young people and need support?

We are now inviting applications for projects that are looking to support young people in a safe and supportive space where they can talk and be themselves. These projects will focus on creating a sense of community.


We will prioritise projects that:

  •  Enable the creativity and potential of young  people to support and guide their future 
  •  Are a space for young people to speak about their mental health, including any fears they have about the current social climate
  • Give young people the confidence to speak up on social issues that affect them and their mental health, having conversations they may not have had in the classroom

The deadline for applications is 9am on Monday 20th July 2020
