Crowdfunding and other LifeSkills with Barclays

LifeSkills with Barclays offers £500 to young people looking to learn and develop skills through the process of running a crowdfunding campaign. In the last twelve months Barclays have pledged to 17 different projects run by young people between the age of 16-25.

These projects ranged from film festivals and sports camps to mobile gardening units and community cafés but even more varied than the projects were the skills these switched on young people acquired and where these campaigns took them next.

Discover some of the project creators supported by Lifeskills with Barclays and the skills they developed here.
