The Money Tree
Worthing's Youth Works Wonders
This year Worthing Youth Councillors and Worthing Borough Councillors have been working hard to bring the young people of Worthing a brand new funding opportunity! There is £10,000 to give away to projects which are by and for young people in the borough. The projects will eventually be voted on by young people who will ultimately make the decision of who get the funding. So start thinking and get applying!
Next questions are...
- Do you live in the Worthing area?
- Are you aged between 11 and 18?
- Have you got a great idea but don’t know where to get the money?
You could apply to The Money Tree!
You can be an individual or part of a community group within the Worthing area. There are two different pots that you can apply to the small pot is for projects up to £500 and the large pot for projects between £500 and £5,000.
All project ideas must be focussed on one of these:
- Stay Safe
- Be Healthy
- Enjoy and Achieve
- Achieve Economic Wellbeing
- Make a Positive Contribution
Most importantly all projects must promote a positive image of young people.
The deadline for applications has now passed, no more applications can be taken.
All the applications will then be looked at by a short listing panel made up of members of the Worthing Youth Council and Worthing Borough Council.
If your application makes it through the short listing stage you will then be invited to attend an event in the week commencing (TBC) 27th May 2013 (half term) where 100 young people from the borough will vote on your project idea.
Voting closes on Friday 21st June ... winners will be announced on Monday 24th June 2013.
Note: If your school is not listed in the survey because you have moved onto college please tick the last school you attended.
The consultation officer deals with:
- all consultations
- Viewpoint (Adur Resident's Panel)
- Talkback (Worthing Resident's panel)
- Adur's Pot of Gold
