Applications must be led by young people aged between 11 – 19 years (or up to 25 with additional needs) who live, work or study in Lambeth, and should be supported by an adult.
The deadline for applications is midday Friday 10th August 2012
The successful projects will be announced in September.

Our community groups have plenty of ideas for improving life for local people but not always the money to carry out their ideas. There are grants available to help community groups get things done. Take a look at the [link below] list of over 50 funding organisations with grants for a wide range of projects including sports, older people, children arts, and the environment.
Last year residents voted to spend money on projects which included the new water playground at Norwood Park.
This year the council has set aside £250,000 for 4 new projects. The council is looking for suggestions for projects needing £25,000, £50,000, £75,000 or £100,000 that would benefit the local community.
Suggested projects will be shortlisted before being put to the public to vote on final projects. The closing date for submissions is 30 September 2010. For more information on how to submit a proposal please contact 020 7926 2583, email firstname.lastname@example.org .
