The Challenge Network has been awarded £120,000 from the Big Lottery Fund to carry out a 3 year project with young people from East London. The money will enable young people to become active citizens within their local communities as part of a personal development programme which will support them in delivering social action projects that make a real difference to local people. 

Almost 500 young people will benefit from this project, which will see them take part in skills workshops in PR, budgeting, event planning and marketing, translating their knowledge into action through designing and implementing community projects.

Getting young people into social action is a key political priority and this project forms part of the Campaign for Youth Social Action, which aims to double the number of young people involved in social action by 2020.
