Asssynt Development Trust Limited
The Luis Gouveia Fund - Grants available for young people of Assynt
In the early 1990's a youth exchange was set up ion Assynt to send a group of young Assynt teenagers to Madeira. The following year Assynt hosted a visit from young Madeirans.
At that time a fund was established to organise more youth exchanges. These exchanges never took place but the fund continues to provide financial support to young Assynt residents who wish to travel for the purposes of pursuing charity work, a sporting or cultural endeavour or some such worthy project.
Assynt Development Trust now administers this fund.Any young Assynt resident at High School, in Higher Education or on a gap year can apply for financial support. In 2019 the Trust has funds available for one or two grants of £250 - £500.
Any young Assynt resident who fulfils the criteria above and who wished to apply for a grant should e-mail either of our two development officers and include details of their project and how they could benefit from the Trust's support.
