Love Lambeth Air Youth Grant scheme open for applications
Lambeth Council, in partnership with the Young Lambeth Co-operative, are offering grants between £1,000 and £2,500 to youth organisations to deliver air quality-themed projects for young people aged 14-19 (or up to 21 if not in employment, education or training) who live, work or study in Lambeth.
Young people, whose respiratory and cardiovascular functions are still developing in teenage years and into their early twenties, are among groups which are most vulnerable to air pollution.
What is required
We are looking for creative, fun, innovative projects which will engage young people and empower them to protect themselves from air pollution and to minimise their own contribution by making healthy lifestyle choices.
Can you help answer
Why bother with air pollution? How do we know when and where air quality is not up to scratch? How can I protect myself? How can I and my family find cleaner air routes to where we’re going? Is walking or cycling better than sitting in a car? Do plants and trees help? Successful projects will answer all these questions, and more.
Who can apply?
Any youth organisation working with young people aged 14-19 (or up to 21 if not in employment, education or training) who live, work or study in Lambeth.
