Young Scot Action Fund

*Please note: We are no longer accepting applications for the Young Scot Action Fund.*

Do you have a bright idea to help your own community? It could be...

  • Helping to clean your local river because it's full of shopping trolleys, rubbish and welly boots.
  • Getting a skate-park built in your local area.

Need a bit of cash to kick start this bright idea? Then the Young Scot Action Fund is what you're after. 

You come up with the idea, tell us about it on the application form, and soon money could be winging its way to you, to put your idea into action.


The Young Scot Action Fund distributes small grants of up to £200 for individuals and up to £750 for groups, six times a year to Young Scots aged 11 - 26 years.
