We are delighted to announce 10,000 Voices in Action Applications for Round 3 are Open!

Apply 10000 Voices Icon

£60,000 funding is up for grabs for youth led projects in Dumfries and Galloway.

The 10,000 Voices in Action fund launched this week and is now open for youth groups, schools and organisations working with young people to apply for a share of the fund! £5000 of funding will be allocated in each of the 12 ward areas of Dumfries and Galloway for projects that address priorities that have identified by young people including mental health, bullying and youth opportunities.

You can choose to apply for up to 100% of your costs through a small grant of £500 to £1000 or a larger grant of £1,000 to £2,500 (please note applications of more than £2,500 will not be accepted).   

Successful applications will be put forward to a public vote in June 2022, and young people across the region will decide how the money is spent through an online voting process, known as participatory budgeting. This exciting project now in its third year has been developed by young people in Dumfries and Galloway as part of the region's Year of Young People Legacy programme.
