Grants from Salix Homes to help fund youth projects or initiatives in our Salford neighbourhoods.
Give your ambitions a boost!
- Maybe you’re an apprentice who’s after some new tools for the trade?
- Perhaps your youth club is in desperate need of some new equipment?
Whatever the cause, if it’s helping young people in Salford, then you're welcome to apply.
Our Boost4Youth fund offers grants of up to £500 towards initiatives that help people aged between 11 and 24 who live in a Salix Homes neighbourhood. We have a funding pot of £10,000 available each year.
Individual young people are invited to apply for funding, if their aim or project addresses one or more of the following themes:
- community issues
- improving the environment
The maximum grant available is £500.
Please note, ‘core’ running costs or personal items will not be funded.
As funding is limited, unfortunately not all applications will be successful.
