Youth Allowance in Salford
Following the history of Youth Bank, Salford Youth Service were initially asked to deliver a similar model for enabling young people in Little Hulton to distribute funds to other young people in the area.
IYSS have recruited young people from Little Hulton to be trained as grant-makers using The Youth Bank Model to distribute Big Local funding to other groups of young people offering services and activities to children and young people in the area.
Young people from the area meet on a regular basis to go over bids by other children and young people from the area and then make recommendations to the Big Local Board on how the lottery money should be distributed.
