A total of £35,000 has been allocated to the Youth Development Fund for 2024/25 to support the development of youth activities and services provided by the voluntary, community and faith sector, upon whom many children, young people and families rely.

The focus of this fund is to promote capacity building and the creation of new projects and initiatives to benefit children and young people in Runnymede.

Grants of up to £7,000 are available to voluntary, community and faith sector organisations, based in, or operating within, Runnymede borough, and delivering services directly to residents under 18.

Organisations will be asked to detail how the funding will support the development of youth activities and services they provide. Funding may be used to increase capacity of existing projects and activities and for the creation of new projects and initiatives to benefit children and young people in Runnymede.

Applicants will need to detail how the Youth Development Fund will contribute to the health and wellbeing of our younger residents, with reference to the priorities listed in the corporate Health and Wellbeing strategy and Climate Change strategy.

Additional consideration will be given to projects that are based in or serve young people living in the following areas of the borough: Chertsey St Anns, Englefield Green West, Addlestone Bourneside, Addlestone North and Egham Hythe

We are supportive of project ideas that have come from young people themselves or applications where young people have been actively involved in the project planning process.


Applications are welcome from registered charities and constituted community, voluntary or faith sector organisations that provide support to Runnymede residents.
