Celebrating Renfrewshire Fund

Celebrating Renfrewshire is a fund designed by and for young people, where young people aged 12-25 will have a direct say on which projects are funded in their local area.

What's happening now?

We received 125 applications totaling almost £300,000, for the £150,000 fund.

The voting period runs from Monday 16 September to Wednesday 25 September.

All you need to know is here - Celebrating Renfrewshire Fund.

Young people aged 12-25 can vote on the Young Scot website for their favourite projects - Voting - Celebrating Renfrewshire Fund

You should use your Young Scot number to vote. If you do not have one, a temporary number can be requested from Renfrewshire Council Youth Services by calling 0141 889 1110.

The projects with the most votes per local partnership area will be funded.

You're invited to come along and find out the winning projects at the announcement event on Wednesday 25th September, 5pm-7.30pm, in the Tannahill Centre, 76 Blackstoun Rd, Paisley PA3 1NT.

How it works?

A group of young people from across all the Local Partnership areas have designed how the fund will work.

They have renamed the fund 'Celebrating Renfrewshire: By young people for young people' and identified a number of priorities.

The application period for funding closed on Tuesday 27 August.

In September, all young people aged 12-25 who live in Renfrewshire will vote on what projects they want to see in their Local Partnership area via the YoungScot website.

The voting results will then be announced at event organised by young people.

What projects can be funded?

Young people could apply for up to £3,000 for projects which benefit young people in the local area.

They could apply to more than one Local Partnership area, but applications must be clear about how they will benefit each area specifically.

Projects should contribute to one or more of the following priorities:

  • Increasing youth involvement and participation
  • Making sport and physical activity more accessible
  • Improving health and wellbeing
  • Creating a positive image of young people
  • Community and road safety

Who could apply?

We want to hear lots of different ideas about what projects would benefit young people, and we particularly encourage ideas that come directly from young people.

If an individual young person or group of young people have an idea they can apply, but they must have the support of a constituted voluntary or community group to submit their application. We can help find a group that might be able to help where this is the case.

Where can I get more information?
