Thrive Small Investments



Thrive Small Investments

This application process has been co-designed by young people and the Thrive Alliance.  Applications will need to demonstrate that they:

·        Involve young people, from design to delivery

·        Support wellbeing and develop emotional health

·        Has lasting benefits for young people

The funding will support new projects or new elements of projects, rather than contributing to an existing project.  We welcome innovative applications from diverse organisations.

Applicants may apply for up to £2000.

As part of the co-designed application process, projects are asked to identify their own outcomes to monitor against and encouraged to provide monitoring and evaluation in a creative format.

All organisations making applications will be offered a facilitated co-design workshop to support their organisation and project.

The investments will be assessed by a panel, including young people. Demonstrating transparency, if panel members are associated with organisations being assessed, they will not be making decisions on these applications.
