Young Start is paused

The Young Start fund is paused, and not currently accepting applications

It’s now more than five years since Young Start first opened, so we are taking some time to review and reshape the fund.

We plan to open in Summer 2018 and will continue to distribute money from dormant bank accounts to fantastic youth-led projects across Scotland.

Before the pause, we saw an increase in the number of applications. Because of this we've extended the turnaround time from application to decision from 8 to 12 weeks.

Key dates

The deadline for submitting before the pause was:
Noon Tuesday 7 November 2017

Applicants will be notified of our decision on:
Tuesday 30 January 2018
