Young Scot's Create18 Fund Welcomes Applications to Round Two

Groups of young people (aged 8-26 years) can still apply for funding to run events across Scotland that support the Year of Young People 2018.

Young Scot, in partnership with EventScotland, set up the Create18 Fund for young people to run events alongside EventScotland’s programme of major ‘signature’ events during the Year of Young People (YoYP) 2018.
Grants of between £250 and £1,000 are available to groups of three or more young people (aged 8 -26 years) to run their own events to commemorate the YoYP.
The funding is for events that incorporate at least one of the following YoYP themes:
• Participation – looking at how young people can influence public services and decisions which affect their lives.
• Education – creating a stronger role for young people in shaping their learning.
• Health and Wellbeing – supporting young people to lead healthier, active lives and have opportunities to learn about and improve their mental health and resilience.
• Equality and Discrimination – broadcasting the value of young Scots, challenging negative perceptions of young people, and supporting young people to take leading roles in challenging discrimination in all its forms.
• Enterprise and Regeneration – celebrating young people’s role in innovation, entrepreneurship and the Scottish economy as well as making Scotland a greener and more pleasant place to live.
• Culture – celebrating young people’s talent and contribution to Scottish culture and arts.
All events must take place in Scotland during 2018 and be open to the public so that all of the community can attend and enjoy. Events must celebrate and engage young people and be led by young people who will be at the heart of the decision making process, including the creation, development and delivery of the proposed event.
Grants can support new event or existing events that will be enhanced as a result of receiving YoYP funding.

To be eligible, applicants must have appointed a Project Support person who is over the age of 21 years.


The deadline for Round Two applications is 22 January 2018 (5pm) for projects taking place between 1 July and 31 December 2018.
