The East Cambs Youth Consultation Panel has been awarded £1,754 to help buy equipment for a social media project.
The group received the money from the Cambridgeshire Police and Crime Commissioner’s Youth Fund.
Jane Darlington, chief executive of Cambridgeshire Community Foundation, said: “The young people should be very proud of what they have achieved. Groups like this make a real difference to their communities.”
Cambridgeshire Police and Crime Commissioner, Councillor Jason Ablewhite, said: “I was told that, after receiving funding from my Youth Fund, one charity went on to attract money from Children in Need.
“It is heart-warming to see how a small amount of money can make such a significant difference and lead to more young people benefitting from the charities.”
A new round of funding will be launched in April with a focus on encouraging young people to get involved in volunteering and social action. Visit www.cambscf.org.uk or www.cambs-pcc.org.uk for more information.
