OUR 2023 COMMUNITY EXPERIENCE PROGRAMME

COMMUNITY EXPERIENCE APPLICATIONS OPEN 13 FEBRUARY 2023… 


From 2023, NCS will be awarding two different types of grants to local organisations delivering community-based experiences at a grassroots level, for the first time.

Open to All Grants: These year-round grants are for regularly scheduled programmes that are embedded in young people’s local communities, with structure and support from NCS Trust, but locally tailored by you, the grantee. We will offer grants to deliver Open to All programmes across regions and the grant amount will be based on the number of young people between the defined age range in those regions.

Targeted Grants: These grants may be given for scaling your existing intervention, or trialling a new innovation, with targeted groups of young people. We will offer a variety of larger and smaller grants, creating opportunities for national or regional organisations, alongside small grassroots organisations.

RECENT ENGAGEMENT EVENTS

We recently held engagement events both virtually and in person all over the country. They gave updates on our grant criteria and application process, shared more information about the grants, and opened up the conversation to allow you to help us shape some of our plans.
