Maryhill & Ruchill Funding Opportunity!

FaceBook  Twitter  

Thanks to funding from the Scottish Government & Maryhill Housing Association young people from Maryhill/Ruchill have been deciding how £40,000 will be spent in their community. Young Movers (YoMo) have been consulting young people on the criteria, priorities and who can get involved in deciding which projects receive funding at our decision making event on Tuesday 19th March 2019.

This approach is known as Participatory Budgeting and it is where local people decide through a voting event how public money will be spent locally. This is different from traditional ways of funding projects where decisions are usually made by a small number of people.

Who can apply

  • Any local group can apply for funding for an idea that supports people from Maryhill/Ruchill.

How much is available

  • You can apply for between £100 and £5,000
  • The total amount of money we have to distribute is £40,000

Where there are more applications than funding available we will shortlist projects that meet one or more of the priorities identified by young people

  • Projects that benefit young people
  • Projects that promote health and wellbeing

Before you apply

  • Please read the application form fully
  • If you are unsure if your proposal is suitable for this programme just get in touch and we will advise you

North East Grant Giving Update!

FaceBook  Twitter  

YouthBank's Young Grantmakers are currently planning our first Community Budgeting Event! This is an opportunity for Young People to apply for grants and share their project ideas on a bigger scale alongside inviting the wider community to have more of a voice in the final decision through an open voting system.

This means our usual format of GrantGiving to assess applications will be put on hold for the time being as we will be releasing new ways of sending in your project ideas soon.

For the time being, check out these videos that explain the running of Community Budgeting Events.

YoMo calls for your action on our LGBT charter!

FaceBook  Twitter  

We are currently working towards our Silver LGBT Charter with LGBT Youth Scotland, as part of this we have created a campaign against prejudice and discrimination of the LGBT community.

Our campaign needs YOUR support and you can get involved by signing up to one of our four calls to action and wearing the badge to spread the message.

Our Pledges:

  1. "If I hear the word gay used negatively, I will challenge" 
  2. "If I see inequality, I will challenge."
  3. "If I feel LGBT rights are breached, I will challenge."
  4. "I will celebrate and support LGBT young people." 

We chose these 4 pledges as we wanted to bring attention to the different ways LGBT people face prejudice and discrimination. Throughout our campaign we discovered many shocking and illuminating statistics, such as, just over a third (35%) of LGBT young people said that they had experienced a hate crime or incident in the past year (LGBT Youth Scotland, 2017).

We chose “If I hear the word gay used negatively, I will challenge” as young people wanted to bring attention to how common phrases used by young people are not okay. We felt the phrase ‘that’s so gay’ used to describe something as negative was used far too often and we want people to pledge to challenge this language if they hear it by informing people that it is offensive.

71% of LBGT young people experienced bullying in school on the grounds of being LGBT (LGBT Youth Scotland, 2017).

We chose “I will celebrate and support LGBT young people” as we as a staff team felt it was important to make young people feel good about themselves. Every young person should feel celebrated and supported and so we wanted to highlight this and encourage everyone to be there for young people and be able to signpost young people to relevant organisations if they need support.

Half (50%) of LGBT young people and 63% of transgender young people experienced suicidal thoughts or behaviours (LGBT Youth Scotland, 2017)

You can get involved by getting in touch with us and pledging to one of our calls to action! Please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you’d like to pledge or would like more information.
