Seed funding from Government and the Big Lottery Fund created the #iwill investment pot.

#iwill is a match funding programme, so every donation is doubled by the fund.

#iwill achieves the following:

  • Promotes social action amongst 10-20 year olds
  • Helps young people support their own communities through programmes which encourage campaigning, volunteering, fundraising.
  • Practical, sustainable skills and confidence building are key impacts sought through the funded projects.

The 6 principal qualities of social action are:

  • Reflective – Supports critical reflection and learning
  • Challenging – Ambitious, enjoyable and enabling
  • Youth-led –     Shaped by young people’s decisions, needs and ideas
  • Impactful –      Benefits issue, community or cause
  • Progressive – Links to other opportunities and ideas
  • Embedded –  Linked with existing pathways, becoming a habit for life
  • Over 2017/18, WCF funded 18 youth-led projects across Worcestershire

The programme will return for distribution via the national CF network.
