Big Lottery Fund and Department of Culture, Media & Sport are each investing £20million seed funding over four years to create the #iwill fund. Community Foundation for Calderdale is acting as match funders adding £30,000 to the fund locally and are awarding grants on behalf of the #iwill fund.

The programme aims to increase the overall participation of young people in meaningful social action from 40% to 60% by 2020, with a particular focus on deprived areas.

Social action involves activities such as campaigning, fundraising and volunteering and has huge potential to create enjoyable opportunities and skills development for young people, and in turn, benefit the local people and places.
