Inspiring Scotland 14:19 Fund

Date: 10th November 2010
Category: Education, Leisure and Cultural Activities

This new fund aims to significantly reduce the number of young people aged 14-19 who have been unable to make a successful transition between school and education, training or work.

The scheme will invest the majority of its resources into the 8 local authority areas where 80% of this group of young people are currently found i.e. Glasgow City; Dundee; West Dunbartonshire; North Ayrshire; Inverclyde; Edinburgh City; East Ayrshire and Clackmannanshire.Up to 20% of the schemes resources will invest in areas outwith those listed above.

Inspiring Scotland is looking to invest in charities which make a strong contribution to supporting 14-19 year olds to engage in education (school, further or higher) and/or work.

The scheme will look at helping with core costs and expansion & development costs for up to 7-10 years.
