Karma Seas CIC issue short film thanks to Bridgend Youth Led Grants

Published: 1 June 2021

Karma Seas CIC in Porthcawl has issued their new short film funded by a Bridgend Youth Led Grant to help engage more young people to access sport and try out volunteering.  

Bridgend Youth Led Grants is administered by BAVO and is funded by Welsh Government and Wales Council for Voluntary Action to help young people aged 14 – 25 to volunteer and to be more involved in community and voluntary organisations in their local community.

Allocated by our Bridgend Youth Led Panel, the purpose of the funding is to identify ways to engage more young people to volunteer.

Karma Seas rely on their young volunteers to help local individuals and community groups so they are able to be more inclusive, offering support to individuals to take part in outdoor water therapy sessions.

Through a BAVO Youth Led Grant of over £1,400, their young volunteers enjoyed learning new media skills so that they could take ownership of sharing their own stories. They learnt how to use new equipment to take photographs and videos for podcasts, which have been shared through a variety of social media platforms to engage more young people and increase involvement from disadvantaged and under-represented young people to volunteer.
