Young Healthwatch Central Bedfordshire is awarded the Youth Work and Positive Activity Grant
This fund has been set up by Central Bedfordshire Council’s Youth Support Service to provide grants to encourage and enable young people’s participation in positive activities and personal development opportunities across Central Bedfordshire.
The purpose should be to enable young people to voluntarily take part in, or initiate, planned and purposeful activities that clearly benefit their health, learning or social and personal development.
The Council awarded just 12 grants between October 2018 and February 2019 and we were so excited to be successful with the Young Volunteer’s suggestion of First Aid Training for Young People. It adds to the positive way in which Young Healthwatch in Central Bedfordshire is developing.
