The Year of Young People 2018 aimed to inspire Scotland through its young people, celebrating their achievements, valuing their contribution to communities and creating new opportunities for them to shine locally, nationally and globally.

Spirit also worked with our partners, the Big Lottery Fund, Heritage Lottery Fund and SportScotland to develop the Year of Young People National Lottery Fund. Spirit has contributed funding to the Fund which was launched on the 19 March 2018. It offered funding of between £3,000 and £10,000 to heritage, community and sports projects that are run for and by young people aged 8 to 26 and that improve their health and wellbeing.
