Pairc Trust's annual Youth Enablement Award for 2022 has been launched, and applications are now being sought.
Up for grabs is a £500 grant to help a young person living in the area fulfil their ambitions.
Now in its second year, the Youth Enablement Award is open to anyone between the ages of 16 – 30 who lives in Pairc or who has a close connection with the area. The award can be used to help set up a micro-business, plan further education, a project which benefits the area, or some other venture.
Last year, the community landowner's award went to teenager Adam Cheeseman from Marvig. He used the cash to buy new tools for his micro-business, making bird feeders and nest boxes from salvaged materials.
Announcing the launch of this year's award, Pairc Trust Vice Chairman Angus Nicolson said: "The criteria and the age range for this award are deliberately wide, and if you're not sure that your idea or project fits the bill, you can get in touch and have a chat with Emma in the Pairc Trust office who'll be happy to talk it all through with you. We very much look forward to reading the applications and partnering with one of our young people as they achieve their goals."
