Sport Relief Awards
Scotland Unltd has launched its Sport Relief programme
Sport Relief is aimed specifically at young people aged 11 – 21 who are setting up projects in their communities to address and resolve conflict (racism, sectarianism, territorialism, discrimination on the basis of sexuality etc …..) and promote community cohesion through participation in sport or other physical activity (‘sport’ is a broad term and can include activities like yoga, dance, break-dancing, skateboarding, snowboarding etc …).
The awards consist of finance – up to £500 for 11 – 16 year olds and up to £5,000 for 16 – 21 year olds; and support to develop and deliver the project. As part of the scheme we’re also recruiting for a Youth Panel. Members of the Youth Panel will eventually assess and make decisions on the awards applications and I’ve attached a person spec for anyone interested in getting involved at this level.
We’re specifically seeking young people who will apply for these awards themselves – not the youth organisations who they may be involved with – although a youth worker will have to apply on behalf of anyone aged 11-16 and will be expected to manage the money on their behalf.
For further information about the programme please call us on 0141 221 2322 (West of Scotland) or 0131 221 2322 (East of Scotland)or visit our website at www.unltd.org.uk
