A NEW initiative aimed at funding community projects has been launched by a charity.
Stevenage Community Trust has established Community Dragons' Den, where young people can apply for money to fund a project which will leave a legacy in their area.
Trust manager June Oldroyd said: "The criteria for the project is quite broad as we want the young people to be limited only by their imagination."
Those behind successful written applications will be asked to present their idea to a board of business and community representatives.
