Live UnLtd backs people aged 11-21. Previously supported ideas include a cycle courier start-up and a community bicycle recycling scheme.

Funded by the Millennium Awards Trust, Big Lottery Fund, and Comic Relief, Live UnLtd can award grants of up to £5000 per project, with the majority of grants being £1000 or less.

“Demonstrate that you have identified a problem and can explain how your project would tackle the problem,” states Live UnLtd.

Previous projects include Pedal Power Transport of Bristol, set up by student Sam Harris.

Live UnLtd is also one of the funders of Cycle Mania of Risca in Wales, created by Josh Robbins, when he was 17 years old. Cycle Mania is a community bicycle recycling scheme and cycle maintenance centre.
