Mark Taylor, City of Wolverhampton’s Council’s Deputy Chief Executive said: “I would encourage any voluntary organisation in Wolverhampton which provides services to young people and meets the application criteria to apply for this funding. It is an opportunity for local organisations to get support to provide activities that will benefit young people in the city.”

The funding has been announced by the Youth Engagement Strategic Board, which comprises representatives from different youth voice groups in the city, such as Wolverhampton Youth Council, Culture & Diversity Group, HY5 (SEND Forum), Children In Care Council (CiCC) and the Local Youth Ambassador Groups. 
The board, which was launched in November 2020, is supported by the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Co-production and Youth Engagement Team and plays an integral role in ensuring that #YES is delivered in co-production with young people and other voluntary organisations across the city.
