The Empowering Young People programme is worth £50 million, with grants between £100,000 and £600,000.
The new programme will help young carers, young people with a learning disability and young people who face barriers to education, training or employment. The money will go to projects that will empower young people to transform their lives by increasing their health and well being, getting them ready for education, work or training and building stronger relationships in their communities.
Any voluntary or community sector group that receives funding will be expected to involve young people in their project
The funding programme, which will support young people aged between eight and 25, will remain open for applications for six years.
The Big Lottery Fund is running two workshops in April to provide more information about the grant programme. The first session will take place in Belfast on 21st April and Derry on 30th April.
