Applications open for second round of Youth Holiday Activities Programme

The East Suffolk Youth Priority Actiion Group launched their Youth Holiday Activites Programme in June 2016. The aim of the project is to improve the variety of opportunities available to young people aged between school years 7 – 13 (ages 11-18 years) in east Suffolk. 

The project builds on the work of the ESYPAG who has been working since 2015 to support and develop youth participation in Suffolk Coastal and Waveney. The ESP has provided £50,000 in funding to support the initiative over the next two years.

The new project is being led by young people, with support from the District and County Councils. Final decisions on successful applications will be made by a panel of young people who will also benefit from the project management skills they learn from the project.

Activity providers across Suffolk Coastal and Waveney are being asked to get involved and provide not just sport, but also activities promoting the arts, science as well as activities to improve skills, as well as activities aimed at young disabled people.

This round of funding will be used to organise projects taking place during February half term, Easter holidays and May half term in next year and can be applied by youth organisations across east Suffolk.

The project builds on the work of the ESYPAG who has been working since 2015 to support and develop youth participation in Suffolk Coastal and Waveney.

Applications need to be completed by Friday 21st October at 5pm.
