Applications wanted for new young peoples grant scheme

Groups and organisations are invited to apply for cash to help support young peoples' activities in Langley Mill & Aldercar.

Amber Valley Borough Council is launching the "Langley Mill & Aldercar Young Peoples Activity Grants", which is funded by Asda.  The Scheme will fund activities for people up to the age of 18 that aim to provide a service, which strengthens community links in the area.

Working with Rural Action Derbyshire, a voluntary organisation which  develops communities to empower themselves to improve the quality of life and facilities within their areas, the council consulted with people in Langley Mill and Aldercar about their priorities.

Councillor Stephen Hayes, Cabinet Member for Developing Places to Live said: "Working with Rural Action Derbyshire we spoke to local people who said they wanted to improve chances for younger people to help them fulfil their potential within the area and to contribute to the community. This money is a real boost which will enable young people take part in sustainable activities into the future."

The Scheme provides grants of up to a maximum of £1,000, however the grant panel will look for projects that have attracted other sources of funding or In-kind donations. The grants will be offered on a 'first come, first served' basis.

Projects must demonstrate regeneration benefits for Langley Mill & Aldercar by achieving at least one of the following priorities:

  • Improving the health of children and young people
  • Developing events/festivals
  • Value for money
  • Reducing crime
  • Encouraging access for all


Applications can be submitted at any time.  For more information contact Wendy Burridge, at Amber Valley Borough Council on 01773 841493 or email
