If you think it is important to actively involve young people in the decisions you make then your organisation can apply for anything between £500 up to £2,500 to help establish any kind of ‘youth voice’ group in your area through our Youth Voice Network.

'Youth voice' simply refers to a group of young people who represent the views and opinions of other young people in their community. It can be about what happens in a geographic area or it can be about a specific issue.

If you already support a ‘youth voice’ group (and these can be youth councils; youth forums; youth mayors; steering groups; campaign groups etc) then you may bid for some of this funding to develop it further.

Spark welcomes proposals from any kind of constituted voluntary, community or not-for-profit organisations as well as Town, Parish, District or Borough councils operating in the area covered by East Sussex County Council.

There’s no application form. To make a bid write a proposal (no more than 1,000 words) outlining the ideas for the group and what you need the funding for and send it in by the 16th of February.

Guidelines and background notes can be found by clicking on the ‘Youth Voice’ tab on the SPARK website homepage at or by CLICKING HERE.
