YOUTH projects in the area have a chance to receive extra funding to go towards days out and workshops.

Stroud District Council is making grants of up to £1,000 available to youth projects operating in the district through the Stroud Youth Activities Fund.

The programme helps to fund short term activities like educational trips out, themed arts and music projects, first aid training and cookery workshops.

The aim is to make a positive difference to young people and support them in becoming active citizens in their community.

Kieran Chadwick, chairman of Stroud District Youth Council, said: "We are really keen to see applications from existing youth and community groups or anyone who wants to set up a new project."

The deadline for applications is Friday, February 15.

Application forms and more details are available at or by emailing or by calling 01453 754276.
