their volunteering, and that of others.

Applications are considered, selected and recommended by a local Youth Panel aged 14-25 years, thus ensuring the projects are created and approved by, and directly benefit young people and their communities.

The Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 aims to improve the way that Wales achieves economic, social, environmental and cultural well-being and recognises volunteering is a key activity which contributes to these aspects of well-being.

This year we are asking applicants to consider how the project they have created will contribute to the wellbeing goals within their communities. You can find out more about these goals by clicking the links below:
