Gamechangerz Awards

Gamechangerz Awards
GameChangerz are a group of young grant makers who have the responsibility for distributing funds from Coalfield Regeneration Trust to their local community through the creative ideas of young people in their area.

After receiving adequate training, the young people then came up with their own criteria which both met the conditions of Youthbank Scotland and Coalfield Regeneration Trust as well as meeting the areas of interest that the group had identified as priority

GameChangerz have so far heard presentations from Logan Boxing Club who were looking for training equipment, Four Connections who were looking for help funding a 5-week health and fitness programme including an instructor, smoothie maker and some small pieces of equipment. Townhead United football club who were looking for new training gear for their team and East Ayrshire Young Carers who were looking for help hosting a party to celebrate the work that the young people do.
Each of these organisations have been awarded funding of various amounts up to the value of £300.


If you are part of a youth group and are aged between 12 and 25 years old then you can apply to GameChangerz for help funding your project. Keen to find out more or apply for funding?
