Glasgow North East YouthBank will not be accepting applications until further notice. 
We have funded lots of fantastic projects this year but unfortunately our grant pot can only stretch so far. 
We have received over 100 applications this year and our young grant makers have worked so well to keep up with the demand. 
All applications that were in before the 4pm deadline on Monday 19th February should now have received an email regarding their applications next steps.

We would like to thank all of the young people & supporting organisations for your patience. This really highlights how many fantastic youth led projects are happening in the North East of Glasgow.

Volunteers challenge social stigma

FaceBook  Twitter  

Our fabulous volunteers have been working with Fixers to challenge the stereotypes around growing up and living within the Easterhouse area. Together they have came up with this fantastic video to showcase that Easterhouse is not the same place as it used to be and to show the positive impact volunteering has made within the local community. 

'Growing up in Easterhouse wasn’t the best,' said lead fixer Kieran O’Shea.

'People would think we were up to trouble and avoid us, there were no opportunities. But no one really knows what we are up to and how good we are.'

YoMo would like to thank all volunteers for their fantastic contribution to their communities and making a positive impact out there.

Kicking off LGBT History Month!

FaceBook  Twitter  

YoMo are in the process of completing their LGBT Charter Mark at Silver Level. As part of this we are marking LGBT History Month, which is a great opportunity for local authorities, businesses and third sector organisations to show their support for the LGBT community.

YoMo would like everyone to know that we have some training opportunities that we have developed and can’t wait to get out and deliver. First, we have incorporated some LGBT awareness training into YouthBank Grant Giving North East on 26th February at Glasgow Kelvin College, Easterhouse Campus and 21st Feb at North West Grant Giving Knightswood.

Throughout the month of February, we will have opportunities for young people to go through LGBT training and will be celebrating Purple Friday on Feb 23rd – a day to stand against homophobia, biphobia and transphobia and to show support for LGBTI equality.

To find out more information about LGBT History Month visit: http://lgbthistorymonth.org.uk or http://lgbtyouth.org.uk
