Small Grant Scheme
Supporting UASC Young People and their communities
Amity hub is a partnership between Staffordshire County Council and Above n Beyond where mutual understanding and friendship are valued and promoted with young people who are seeking asylum and those who are refugees. At Amity, we offer support, guidance, counselling, education and fun activities, in a purpose-built hub where young people feel welcomed, involved and included.
Don’t be put off by misrepresentation in the media of what an asylum seeker is. They are first and foremost, people with feelings who have experienced significant loss and acute stress journeying thousands of miles to be kept safe from further fear and persecution.
Do you offer leisure interests? Do you have a talent or skill that could benefit young people and support them to feel part of their community? Maybe you have a dance club, boxing club, football club, to name a few. There is an opportunity to reach out and offer your services to those young people who are marginalised. You could benefit from receiving £1k grant for your services.
We are now ready to consider applications.
We have small grants of up to £1k available to award to support our young people who attend Amity hub.
If you enjoy meeting young people, have a business, company, or are part of a community project, you could benefit whilst providing a positive experience to these vulnerable group of young people.
We know you will never look back and you will learn so much from the young people themselves to utilise £1k towards what you do best.
