DYW Glasgow Opportunity Fund - 12 Organisations to Receive Funding

Earlier this year, applications opened for our Opportunity Fund – a programme offering grants from £100-£7,500 to encourage and enable businesses and schools within Glasgow to engage with the DYW Glasgow agenda.

Having received a large number of applications across various sectors including construction, enterprise and digital skills, the projects went to a public vote as well as sent to a panel for judging with 12 organisations being chosen to receive funding: 

  • All Saints
  • Rosshall Secondary
  • Holyrood Secondary
  • Lennox Partnership
  • Rookie Oven
  • GMG Contracts
  • Glasgow Youth Council
  • Drumchapel Secondary
  • St Rochs Football Club
  • Glasgow Marriott
  • St Andrews Secondary
  • Young Enterprise Scotland 

Leona Seaton, Programme Director at Developing the Young Workforce said: “We had such a brilliant response to the Opportunity Fund from a range of organisations.

After much deliberation as well as a public vote, twelve projects that stood out and best represented the key areas of the DYW agenda have been selected.

With a great mix of successful applicants, from schools to charities to sports clubs, we look forward to seeing the organisations put their plans into action.”
