What is TOFFY?
TOFFY is “Torbay Opportunity Fund For Youth” We are a group of local
young people who give out money from the Government (the Youth Op-
portunity Fund) to other local young people. We want to make sure the
money gets to the right people — people who would not be able to have
“New Things To Do, New Places To Go” unless they had money from
TOFFY. Please fill in this application form to let us know why you want
TOFFY money. Thank You

The money bit!
This section is for you to tell us how much money
your project / activity will need and how much money
you would like from the Youth Opportunity Fund – you
can apply for up to £500.
The Youth Opportunity Fund has been split into two. The first part (the
Youth Opportunity Fund) can be used for local activities and projects
for young people. The money is there to be spent on things that you’d
like to do, but haven’t had the chance to do. The other part (called the
Youth Capital Fund) can be used to buy bigger “things” that will last
after the project has finished.
The maximum amount of money any individual young person can
apply for is £500.
