Young Start is a grants programme run by the Big Lottery Fund to distribute money from dormant bank accounts. It aims to create opportunities for children and young people aged 8 - 24 to help realise their potential.

Young Start is open to open to third sector organisations including voluntary organisations, community groups, social enterprises, housing associations, sports organisations, co-operatives and charities. Organisations can apply for a grant of between £10,000 and £50,000 for up to 2 years.

Don't delay! The programme, which has been running since March this year, has already distributed almost 50% of the £8.9m budget for this year.
