Go Think Big are excited to be able to offer up to £500 for your social action project all aimed at innovation and creating something new. If you’re aged 15-24 you could be in with the chance of receiving up to £500 funding for your big idea that thinks outside the box! If you have a creative and unique project idea, then we want to help you get it off the ground.

We are looking to fund the biggest and best project ideas. If you have an interest in social action and entrepreneurialism, and would love some help getting an idea from paper to out in the big wide world, we want to hear from you. Apply today!

Who should apply?

If have an idea in this area that you would love to make happen, this could be the perfect opportunity for you. We are looking for project ideas which consider making a positive impact on your community, and make use of digital technology. This can be anything from an app to an event, from a website to a live music event, from a community initiative to a arts and creative workshop. We want you to be creative, entrepreneurial and innovative!
