Through grants of up to £10,000 we will support a wide range of ideas that help children and young people in their development and well-being. We particularly focus on activities that support children and young people’s happiness and confidence as an antidote to modern pressures and to support their opportunities and aspirations through activities such as sport, creative arts and outdoor adventures.
Projects we support should be working towards one or more of the following outcomes
Improving children and young people’s emotional resilience and mental wellbeing
Increasing children and young people’s opportunities
Empowering children and young people to become more confident and pursue their aspirations.
Projects based around enhancing or conserving the local physical environment that also benefit the wider community and improve people’s lives. The fund has the following priorities:
‘Greening’ urban areas
The M&S Energy Community Energy Fund is back with £300,000 to support renewable energy projects and technologies across the UK. Last time around we distributed the money to inspiring organisations, shortlisted from hundreds of entries, that brought the benefits of energy initiatives to their communities. In the end almost 80,000 votes were cast and 25 projects received funding, including the seven judges’ prize winners. Could it be you this year?

A webinar discussing the programme in more detail will also take place from 2pm-3pm on Thursday 15 June. You can register to take part here.
What is the grants programme
We have introduced this Grants Programme to promote good practice – to support independent, innovative research and solutions focused on privacy and data protection issues.

Eligible organisations are invited to bid for grants to facilitate independent research and projects.
Active Spaces is a new national programme which will create activity programmes to inspire the most inactive communities to get active and use their local outdoor spaces. The programme will secure 50 new Fields in Trust protected sites across the UK and help increase participation in many different physical activities on local parks, playing fields and green spaces which will be protected for future generations to use and enjoy.
Parks and informal green spaces have an important role to play in helping deliver this activity agenda being the settings for entry-level activity. Inactive people don’t suddenly start playing sport in a formal setting, they walk, jog, cycle or play – and they need safe local green spaces to do this.
UK Youth’s Change Squad programme inspires young people to give back to their local communities.
The programme provides 150 Change Squad teams with up to £400 of funding to enable them to start their social action journey. Through the programme, young people are empowered to create, develop and deliver inspiring projects that they believe address local issues – helping them to grow, learn and practice vital life skills and have a voice in their community.
These social action ideas and projects take many shapes from turning junk into musical instruments and hosting local sports days to organising litter picks and facilitating language swaps. All Change Squad projects help support the development of young people while also providing dual benefits to the local community.
