The Young Placechangers Ideas Fund supports Youth Groups to engage with others in their communities to take action to improve the environmental quality, biodiversity, playability and vibrancy of neighbourhoods.

Do you want to improve your local park or greenspace? create new places to play or hang out? Clean up your street and involve others? Create an exhibition to celebrate the history of your area?   Then the Ideas Fund could be for you!

Young Placechangers are young people between the ages of 12-25 who want to change their local environment for the better. This could be their local greenspace, street, community centre garden, whole village, neighbourhood or town. The Young Placechangers lead community placemaking projects in their local communities.

You can apply to the Ideas Fund at any time. Seed corn grant applications for up to £500 are awarded at a rolling basis. However, there are set points when Ideas Fund applications (up to £3000) are reviewed and awarded For more information visit Young placechangers
