Selwyn Youth Project Fund
The Selwyn Youth Council has established a discretionary fund called the Selwyn Youth Project Fund. It is managed by the youth council, and funding is to provide support for groups or individuals whose events or activities contribute to the strengthening of youth wellbeing in Selwyn.
At their monthly meeting, members of the youth council will assess the applications and distribute the funds as they see appropriate.
Please carefully read the Selwyn Youth Project Fund Policy and Guidelines before completing your application form. An accountability report template is also available to use to submit when funds received are used or within 12 months of receiving funding.
