Start a project

We offer rounds of funding for 13-25 year olds to help bring ideas to life, using tech for social good and encouraging innovation.  We open different calls for applications throughout the year around key themes and campaigns.  Sign up to our Go Think Big newsletter to stay in touch, or read on to find out what funding opportunities are currently open...

We are currently offering up to £500 for ideas to help tackle the planet's most pressing environmental issues. So if you're 13-25 and have a small-scale idea, you can apply below using the Youth Partner Code ENVIRO.

We are also accepting applications for The Environment Now, funded by O2 and the National Lottery through the Big Lottery Fund, as part of the Our Bright Future programme.  If you have got an idea to help the environment, such as improving energy efficiency, reducing waste or increasing recycling, and you are aged between 17 and 24, then you could apply for up to £10,000 from The Environment Now to bring your idea to life!

Use the form below to apply for an Environmental Project (use Youth Partner Code ENVIRO), or The Environment Now (use Youth Partner code TEN).
