O2 offers £5 million for young people's local projects

Telecoms company O2 is offering £5 million to young people aged 13-25 across the UK to support a project of their choice in their local community. Successful applicants will receive a cash grant of £300, together with training and support to help them make the most of it.

The Think Big programme will also offer successful applicants the opportunity to re-apply for a further £2,500 cash for the project.

O2’s Head of CR and Sustainability Bill Eyres said that he expects the fund to support a “huge variety of projects”, from starting a local youth group to building a skate park. “We’ll be encouraging young people to Think Big” he added.
