Bishopton Senior Youth ’84- Bishopton Senior Youth ’84 – Climate Change Champions in Renfrewshire

The purpose of the three Climate change projects are:

To provide a place for young people to connect with others, learn about climate change and have their voices heard. To make new friends, follow current interests and develop new interests. 

To meet in two local communities (Erskine and Glenburn) close to young peoples’ homes so they can take part by walking, cycling or taking the bus. As two out of three projects are after school, supporting young people to be as independent as possible, to them there safely.

To provide opportunities for older Climate Change Champs in Erskine and Paisley to use their volunteering time to run clubs for younger teens and children. 

To provide a monthly Saturday club for young people to travel within Renfrewshire for nature connection and to support Renfrewshire’s biodiversity by taking part in projects such as tree planting, helping wildlife, helping with community gardens and visiting projects to learn more about wild places.

Erskine Arts- Erskine Arts Employs!

We think young people aged 16-17 should have meaningful employment opportunities in their local area. We believe young people should have access to a fair hourly rate as well as training and guidance during work. Successful young people will gain experience and skills working for a unique, diverse and often fast-paced creative arts charity with the full support of a passionate and skilled staff team where individuals can achieve their potential.

Erskine Arts- Erskine Arts: “The Studio”

Finding a place to learn, and play music as a young person can be a difficult and at times financially burdening task. Private spaces costs money and don’t provide an open and fun experience for friends. We want to provide the best equipment and experience for young people who are on the journey of learning an instrument. With this fund, we can buy pro equipment to provide an industry-standard experience for all young people at no cost.  

Erskine Youth Council- Erskine Youth Drop-In

After strong feedback from our last two successful Youth Clubs, Erskine Youth Council (EYC) is planning a Youth Club for all young people aged 11+, offering a safe, fun space to bring friends, make new friends and join in on community projects such, like a Spray Painting mural, that young people decide on! There will be; Video Games, a Pool Table, Just Dance, Board Games, Arts & Crafts and Free Food!

Girls’ Brigade Clyde- Common Good – GB Clyde

Our young people are from a variety of social backgrounds, this should not be a factor that holds them back from opportunities, GB Clyde Division aims to reduce stigma and encourage our young people to take opportunities when they arise. As a charity, we ensure no young person goes hungry – most of our companies provide a hearty snack, we also aim to reduce loneliness within young people – by providing a safe place and fellowship.

Loud n Proud- Sounds Right

This is an exciting opportunity for young musicians from all over Renfrewshire to get access to 5 high-quality rehearsal and music production studios. Sound treatment will make the rooms fit for purpose and create an inspiring space for creating music. Having such a resource like this locally is a huge advantage to help young people kick-start their career in music.

Loud n Proud- Video Editing Studio

This would bring a room into use for the purpose we intended for it. Having the right equipment would give young people a place to create social media or website content, edit photos and edit video. This will be a huge advantage to help young people increase their creative digital skills.

Mary Russell School Parent Council- Mary Russell Youth Clubs

There is little provision for ASN young people in the Renfrewshire area with many of the mainstream clubs being unable to provide the additional support often needed for our young people.  

The Mary Russell Youth Clubs provide weekly youth club activities for ASN young people that offers them a sense of belonging, safe place to make friends, understanding boundaries, and support to talk about things they might be worried about so they can cope with everyday challenges. Learning through play is an important part of growing up for all children, understanding more about themselves, and the world around them.

Paisley Pirates Supporters Club- Paisley Pirates Ice Hockey Club

There are 8 senior teams playing ice hockey in Scotland and to keep our existing local talent and attract more we need to provide a sustainable offer to local youngsters. We are an amateur team, bound by rules on what we can access and offer so are looking at providing equipment or payment of licenses or memberships to our overarching organisation. We need to do this to make the team an attractive and competitive option for local youngsters.

Rainbow Turtle

Renfrewshire Youth Voice- Positive About Youth Awards

The Positive About Youth Awards gives the chance to celebrate the successes and achievements of young people from across Renfrewshire, while being about to challenge negative stereotypes of young people.

Young people are involved in the creation, delivery and hosting of the event.

We offer governing body certified courses via weekly training, allowing participants to experience all aspects of watersports. Our activities instil physical and mental life skills in our members and keep the heritage of the Clyde alive in each new generation.

Renfrew Victoria YFC- Kitted out

With over 80 members (players and coaches) between the age of 12 and 25, we want everyone to feel part of a team. Having a uniformed kit for everyone to wear will help them feel part of a group and encourage them to stay involved in football and remove the feeling of separation if the cost of kit is no longer a blocker. If awarded, this funding will go a long way to supporting with the cost of kit and keeping our youths involved in football!!!

Snack- snack yearly expenditure

SNACK is a support group for young people aged 12 – 25 with supportive needs. It provides a safe space where people can meet and socialise together, engaging in creative activities, day trips, crafting, gaming, baking and social events. It meets on a Sunday. For most of our members this group provides the only chance to meet with other young people who have similar needs which can be a barrier to wider, regular social interaction.
