The Young Start fund is paused, and not currently accepting applications
It’s now more than five years since Young Start first opened, so we are taking some time to review and reshape the fund.
We plan to reopen the fund in Spring 2018, and will continue to distribute money from dormant bank accounts to fantastic youth-led projects across Scotland.
Before the pause, we saw an increase in the number of applications. Because of this we've extended the turnaround time from application to decision from 8 to 12 weeks.
The deadline for submitting before the pause was:
Noon Tuesday 7 November 2017
Applicants will be notified of our decision on:
Tuesday 30 January 2018
