Teenagers in Torridge, Devon are being invited to apply for a share of £30,000 to help fund various projects.

The district council has made the money available in the new Youth Initiative Budget, available for 11-19-year-olds in the area.

The teenagers can apply for up to £5,000 to use for training, organising events or purchasing equipment.

The council said application forms would be available on its website from 1 May.

Leader of the council, Barry Parsons, said: "I hope this is an indication to all our young people how much we value them and the work they do for all of us."
