Small grants of up to £5,000 (over a two-year period) are available from TVA to enable projects to run that provide volunteering opportunities for young people aged 14-25 years.

The young people can be from an existing group or just young people coming together to run a project of their own choosing. The application must be written by a young person.

Past projects have included organising fundraising events to support local charities, local environmental schemes, and improving facilities for older people. Examples of future projects could be around mental health, young carers, the elderly, health & wellbeing, art, life skills etc.

A panel of young people from Torfaen will assess the applications. They would like all applications to be submitted with a short video (2mins max) explaining the project presented by the lead young person.
