Transformation of a space at youth club

Summary of idea

Thurso Youth Club is a well established independent youth organisation in Thurso. We are dependent on grant aid and our own fundraising to run our programme of activities. Currently we offer sessions for children and young people seven times a week during the term time and we offer activities with hot food during school holidays three times a week. 

The project we are applying for funding is to refurbish and redecorate an area of the youth club which was previously the office. A group of young people have agreed décor, furnishings and the colour scheme etc. for the room and will be involved in making the transformation happen.

Amount requested 

£2,000 (the total amount available for all ideas is £32,000)

Name of organisation

Thurso Youth Club SCIO

Where this will take place


Why the contribution is important

Each application for this fund is to meet the criteria set out by the project Steering Group. More information about the project and the Steering Group is available here

The idea will support the following broad theme(s) to make a difference locally:

  • Safety and wellbeing - including mental health: Making sure that everyone in Caithness has the chance to lead safe, healthy, active lives.


How to vote 

  • Anyone can vote on as many or few ideas as they like 
  • We are using stars to cast votes and you have a maximum of five stars for each idea 
  • The more stars you give an idea, the more you support it
  • For example, if you really like an idea and want it to receive funding, you could give it five stars
  • You don't have to vote for everything but we would encourage you to explore all ideas
  • The ideas that receive the most votes will be successful until all of the £32,000 is spent.

    Youthwork is often a neglected area in public financing. The experiences that this funding will bring will remain with the children for the rest of their lives, contributing to their sense of achievement and decision making.

    This project has been designed by young people for young people and initiatives like this should be encouraged.

    It is something that will stick with young folk for the rest of their lives and will remember when older. It will also offer up a bit more are to them and give them more of a selection of areas/activities they can do.
