The Positive Futures Fund aims to support community/voluntary organisations and registered charities working with disadvantaged young people aged 13 to 25 years old, within Birmingham and the Black Country.
With grants of up to £5,000 for projects that will meet one or more of the following aims:
• Practically helping young people to develop skills so they are prepared for work e.g. opportunities to gain work experience and mock interviews with employers
• Supporting young people who are in the process of leaving care so that they develop skills to live independently
• Raising aspirations of young people by offering organised mentoring opportunities – these opportunities should have an individualised plan which shows growth and clear outcomes for each individual
• Projects supporting mental health of young people on the periphery of crime
