YouthLink Scotland has just launched the Youth Work Social Isolation and Loneliness Fund aimed at youth work groups and organisations to help them support young people.
The wellbeing of young people is a shared national concern and it has never been a more pressing concern. We know from recent research that young people are the age group most likely to report that they are experiencing isolation and loneliness.
As part of the Scottish Government’s commitment to addressing social isolation and loneliness, YouthLink Scotland has received £150,000 to allocate small grants to youth work groups and organisations to help them support young people most affected by social isolation and loneliness.
Grants of up to £5,000 are available to eligible organisations.
