The Richmond and Collingwood Youth Program Grants support projects and initiatives which identify and address the needs of 8 to 21 year olds who live on the Richmond and/or Collingwood Housing Estates.
What are the aims of the youth program grants?
The grants aim to provide children and young people with:
- access to regular and inclusive programs on the Collingwood and Richmond housing estates.
- opportunities to learn new skills and build positive relationships.
- support and encouragement to share ideas that will enhance their health and wellbeing.
- access to information both online and offline about services, programs and events when they need it.
The successful organisation/s works in partnership with children and young people and their families, schools, community agencies, and youth service providers to ensure a robust and integrated service system that fosters and promotes enhanced health and wellbeing outcomes for young people.
The current grant recipient is Drummond Street Services. The grant will reopen for applications in 2024.
