Dream Bigger Grants – open for applications

- Posted byElina

We are really proud to announce that as part of Matt Kendall’s legacy, we have set aside a larger fund of £15,000 to further support young people to achieve their dreams. With the Dream Bigger Grants young people in Birmingham, including previous grantees, can apply for between £2,000 – £3,000 to help them reach their full potential. The deadline for applications is 19 March 2021, and we ask applicants to use the the regular application form.

In addition to meeting our general criteria for funding, young people also need to have established a specific objective together with a longer-term plan of how they aim to reach their full potential, whether they want to get into work, training, education or volunteering.

Criteria for all grants, including the Dream Bigger Grant:

Additional information for young people applying to the Dream Bigger Grant:
The most important thing to remember is that the trustees who make the decision on who will get the grants need to understand what your plan is.

We encourage young people to record a video on their phone where they tell us what they think their future holds for them, and how we can support them to get there.

We look forward to hearing from applicants and their sponsors!
