Pears Youth Fund – Grants awarded in 2017

Pears Foundation set up a new fund through Leeds Community Foundation. They have a specific interest in young people and in understanding the causes and effects of issues affecting communities. The fund supports projects that actively involve young people in the design and delivery and that focus on voice, engagement and influence. There was a particular focus on the barriers that make it more difficult for young people to have a voice and be heard, to interact with others and to engage with local organisations.
