The SNG #iwill Fund 1.0 Grants

Since launching in September 2022, the SNG #iwill Fund 1.0 (Formerly Sovereign #iwill Fund) awarded 24 projects a share of over £203,000.

Youth panel member, Emily said “The SNG #iwill Fund scoring day was a brilliant opportunity to get involved and support on awarding youth social projects funding. I felt empowered by having my own voice and opinion heard, which will go on to encourage youth to have their own say about other potential social youth action in SNG communities via #iwill funded projects."
