If you are a voluntary organisation, charity, CIC/CIO, statutory body or business and have a great small-scale project aimed at young people and children you would like to deliver in the Heart of Pitsea area, you can apply for funding by applying online to our youth forum, Youth YOUnique Generation The Pitsea Pound Pot’.

You can apply at any time.

£200 is the minimum amount that can be applied for and the maximum is £1500. All decisions to move submitted proposals forward for this pot are made by our youth forum who are all teenagers.

Take a look at the Youth YOUnique Generation Pitsea Pound Pot promotional video here…

It is expected that projects will benefit those who live or go to school within the Heart of Pitsea area, though it is appreciated that a project may also impact on areas outside the boundaries in neighbouring areas.

If you would like to submit a project proposal to Youth YOUnique Generation you will need to complete our online Project Proposal form. All applicants require registration. You will then be provided with a unique password which will allow you to complete and save your proposal application in your own time and submit when you are ready.

Decisions are made no longer than six weeks after submission and applicants are notified of the outcome.

All applicants must read our Big Local Plan which sets out what we are trying to achieve. In addition, we have Project Proposal Guidance notes to help you fill in the online forms.
