Through the Winter Fund Grants, Youth Scotland is supporting STV Children’s Appeal and the Scottish Government to disperse funds to children, young people and their families who are experiencing severe poverty.

It is aimed at providing things like food, clothes, fuel, toiletries and basic household essentials that meet the immediate material needs of the most vulnerable children and young people.

As a community-based youth group/organisation and a member of Youth Scotland, you will be able to identify the families in your community who are experiencing poverty and struggling to meet the financial requirements to feed their children, heat their home and afford the basic essentials.
