Council grants support free activities in Queensland Youth Week

Redland City Council is once again offering grants to help local not-for-profit youth organisations run free events during Queensland Youth Week (1-11 April 2022).

Mayor Karen Williams said this was the second year Council had offered the Redlands Coast Youth Week Grants.

“These grants were established to recognise the great work done by not-for-profit youth focused organisations across the city,” she said.

“These organisations not only support our local youth, but provide them with safe spaces to meet, share experiences and to have fun.

“Through these grants, funding of up to $1500 is available to facilitate a free event or activity during Queensland Youth Week.

“Seven grants were awarded last year, with activities ranging from an obstacle course at The Cage Youth Foundation in Redland Bay, to parkour with Running Wild at Macleay and Russell Islands and screen printing t-shirts at the Redland Community Centre in Capalaba.

“Council is pleased to offer the grants once again this year to support events which will give young people the opportunity to come together and make new connections.”

Redlands Coast Youth Week Grant applications close on Tuesday, 15 March 2022.
