10,000 Voices in Action

10,000 Voices in Action Applications are Open!

The 10,000 Voices in Action fund launched this week and is now open for youth groups, schools and organisations working with young people to apply for a share of the fund! £5000 of funding will be allocated in each of the 12 ward areas of Dumfries and Galloway for projects that address priorities that have identified by young people including mental health, bullying and youth opportunities. 

Successful applications will be put forward to a public vote in October, and young people across the region will decide how the money is spent through an online voting process, known as participatory budgeting. This exciting new project has been developed by young people in Dumfries and Galloway as part of the region’s Year of Young People Legacy programme.

Closing date: Friday 2nd October, 2020
