The Young Roots programme is for projects that engage young people, aged 11 to 25, with heritage in the UK. You can apply for a grant between £10,000 – £50,000. Under this programme, there is funding for partnerships of heritage and youth organisations that help young people shape and deliver their own projects in safe environments. Young people are bursting with creative ideas about how to explore and care for their heritage. Whether restoring a vintage motorbike, designing a new nature trail or documenting changes to their community over time, through Young Roots projects young people make a real difference to the places where they live. In the process, their confidence grows and they learn valuable heritage and employability skills. The fund will support applicants to deliver high quality projects for all of the young people, staff and communities involved. Young Roots projects should achieve all of the outcomes for people and communities listed below, and one outcome for heritage. Outcomes for people:

  • developed skills
  • learnt about heritage
  • changed their attitudes and / or behaviour
  • had an enjoyable experience

There is a rolling deadline. For more information visit:
