Youth Media Fund

The Youth Media Fund (YMF), a £6 million fund announced by the Chancellor in his last budget, is being launched by the Department for Education and Skills and will help young people have a positive voice in the media. The aim of the fund is to give 13-19 year olds lifelong skills in media production, opportunities to boost their social and personal development, and a platform for their voices to be heard. The Youth Media Fund will offer grants for film, radio, television, print, photography and interactive media projects ranging from £1,000 to £80,000 to be completed and distributed by March 2008. Young people will be at the core of the Youth Media Fund at every stage, from inception to final delivery. YMF will be delivered by a consortium led by First Light Movies, in partnership with the UK Film Council, the Media Trust and Skillset. The brand name and identity of YMF will be revealed in early December 2006.

YouthBank UK

YouthBank is an innovative UK-wide grantmaking initiative run by young people for young people. Local YouthBanks provide small grants to projects led by young people, of benefit to the community and that also benefit the young people taking part. YouthBank is unique in that it is young people themselves who make decisions about how local YouthBanks are managed and run and, through a Board of young people, also direct the UK-wide programme. Each YouthBank decides its own criteria for grant giving and processes for applying for funds. Some have a standard form that you will need to fill in and others will require a letter of application; many will allow you to apply in different ways for example by using a video or story board. For more information, including where to find your nearest YouthBank, please contact YouthBank UK on 0116 242 7446 or by email at youthbank@nya.org.uk
