Gannochy Trust Launches Youth Panel Fund to Empower Young People in Perth and Kinross

The Gannochy Trust Youth Panel Fund will be managed by 12 young people aged 14-21 and will meet four times a year to assess and approve applications of up to £10,000 from an annual funding pot of £100,000. The Panel has designed the fund’s core aims and outcomes, which include providing learning-based activities and experiences, empowering young people through projects that support their opinions being heard, and helping young people develop independent living skills and activities that focus on improving their wellbeing. The fund is open to registered charities that work in Perth and Kinross, including charities that are already in receipt of Trust funding. This is a great opportunity for intergenerational work to take place.
