Since early 2020, a team of young people have been working with The National Lottery Community Fund. Their role was to identify how National Lottery funding can make the most positive impact for young people in Wales. This has led to the creation of the £10 million Mind Our Future grant programme which opens today.
The development team included ProMo Cymru and Ministry of Life who worked with The National Lottery Community Fund and the young people. The research uncovered key priorities for young people.
A snapshot of these include:
· Access to quality support for their mental health and wellbeing
· A public voice and role in decision-making
· Their future – particularly employment opportunities and access to housing
· The Arts – concerns around the impact of COVID 19 on theatre, music, and film
