New round of #iwill youth social action funding now open

A new round of OCF funding to support volunteering, fundraising and campaigning amongst young people is now open. They are using The Good Exchange for applications and to help you access match funding.

Grants of between £1,000 and £5,000 are available for projects or events that encourage young people aged between 10 and 20 (25 for disabled people) to volunteer, fundraise or campaign for causes they care about.

For the first time this grants programme will be run via match-funding platform The Good Exchange, until the funds are spent, or 30th October 2018, whichever is soonest.

Big Lottery Fund and the Office for Civil Society have invested £2 million in #iwill this year to fund groups delivering local youth social action opportunities. Crucially, in order to draw down the full allocation for Oxfordshire, we need to raise £40,000 in new donations. Each of the successful applications must therefore have an equal amount of funding as a match, raised by you, OCF or The Good Exchange.

Details of where this match could come from and how the applications will work are on the OCF website. If you have any questions about your eligibility or the application process, please contact OCF
