Social Innovation Competition 2018 - delivered by Firstport
Firstport is celebrating Scotland’s Year of Young People 2018 by looking for individuals with the most exciting, innovative and enterprising new ideas for working with and for Scotland’s young people.
Eligible applications must involve innovative ideas and solutions to social issues or challenges affecting young people aged between 8 and 26. This could be through giving them access to new opportunities, helping them to overcome barriers and inequalities, or improving their quality of life. Applicants must be aged 16 or over and permanently resident in Scotland.
Three winners, including one young social innovator under 30, will be announced this autumn and will receive £5000 each, alongside tailored business support from Firstport. Applications close at noon on Monday 30 July. You can find more information at www.firstport.org.uk/socialinnovation
