The Life Changes Trust has announced the launch of the Creative and Active Lives Fund.
The fund aims to grow opportunities across a broad range of creative and active pursuits so care experienced young people can engage with their peers and increase their skills, wellbeing and social connections. It also aims to build the confidence and skills amongst staff, families and carers in relation to creative and active pursuits.
Examples of the types of activities that can be supported include:
- Jewellery Making
- Visual Arts.
Projects must focus on care experienced young people between 14 and 26 years old who have at least three months experience of any of the following:
- Supervision order/looked after at home
- Foster care
- Residential care
- Secure care
- Looked after through Kinship care.
Not for profit organisations, schools, colleges, universities and residential houses are able to apply and proposals are also welcome from projects that give care experienced young people the opportunity to join activities within a mixed group.
The closing date for applications is the 1st December 2017.
