Spaces 4 Change

Space 4 Change (S4C) will fund, support and connect young people with ideas to unlock the potential of unused and under-utilised spaces for the benefit of their community.

You’re between 16 and 24 years old. You might have an idea to transform an abandoned local shop or reimagine an outdoor space. You have an idea that needs initial funding.

There are one hundred awards of up to £5,000 available to fund projects. You will be supported by a dedicated award manager (one of our experts in supporting social entreprenerus). You will also get access to peer-to-peer networking opportunities and the chance to share knowledge and learning.
