Empowerment Grants

Empowerment Grants allowed the Trust to invest in small projects which supported young people with care experience to express themselves and exercise their rights, develop their confidence and skills, improve opportunities for them to have their say on things which matter to them and increase their opportunities to take part in community life.

This scheme also allowed us to provide opportunities for organisations and services working with young people with care experience to strengthen their empowerment approach.

It also provided a mechanism for us to target particular groups who may have ‘quieter voices’, for example young people affected by disabilities, young people within the youth justice system and young people who are looked after at home.
