Do you work with young people aged 11-25?
Do they have a story they want to tell or heritage they want to explore?
The Heritage Lottery Fund‚Äôs Young Roots programme is for grants of between ¬£10,000 and ¬£50,000. It‚Äôs for partnerships between a youth organisation and a heritage organisation, working together to develop a project led by young people who want to explore any aspect of their heritage, whether its local history, cultural heritage or an event in the past.
The youth organsiation can be any not-for-profit organisation with expertise working with young people.
The heritage organisation can be anything from a museum, to a local history group, to a wildlife trust.
We want to give young people aged 11‚Äď25 the chance to plan and deliver their own heritage projects, and give youth and heritage organisations the chance to share expertise. Projects celebrate the young people‚Äôs achievements and share what they're¬†learning with the wider community.
You don‚Äôt have to be a heritage expert to apply!

The Department of Health is looking to develop a new strategy for carers and to help them do so they would like to hear from carers, those who have someone care for them,¬†business, social workers, NHS staff and other professionals that support carers.
The question they are asking is ‚Äėhow can we improve support for carers?‚Äô and they have created a survey which you can respond to yourself and / or pass on to others who you feel would be interested in taking part.
The survey can be found here: https://consultations.dh.gov.uk/carers/how-can-we-improve-support-for-carers
