“Pots of Gold” is an initiative, part funded by The Provincial Walsh Trust & BLGC, which aims to provide BLGC members with funding from £15-£100. This funding can be used to support their learning, skills and hobbies or to help to reduce stress. Young people can apply for this funding themselves, or with the support of an adult if needed.

Applications will go live in February 2022.

Though funding applications aren’t open yet, please feel free to download the funding application form in preparation. You can also apply online, but applications will not be reviewed until the we launch funding applications fully in February 2022.

Young People’s Panel

The initiative will be supported by a Pots of Gold panel of young people from BLGC members. The panel will be helping to make the decisions about other young people’s applications for funds. The panel will meet virtually every three months. This is a great opportunity for our members to get some valuable experience and knowledge for their futures.

We are currently recruiting for members of this panel (deadline 21th January 2022).

If you are interested in joining the panel, and you’re aged between 13 and 17 years old, please click here to apply online or  download the Youth Panel application form.

Completed applications forms should be returned to sarah.randall@blgc.co.uk no later than Friday 21st January 2022.
Successful applicants for the panel will be contacted shortly after, to be invited for training.
