Youth Endowment Fund –£ 6.5 million - deadline 3 June 2020 (12pm)
Social distancing and stay-at-home measures have seen access to schools restricted and the provision of youth services dramatically reduced. The result is that some of our most vulnerable young people have both lost the support they relied on and become increasingly invisible.
Many organisations who are passionate about young people are working hard to find creative ways to address this at a time when their own financial security hangs in the balance. Whilst some continue with their face-to-face work, an increasing number of organisations are turning to digital and virtual activities to deliver their support.
Our dual aims with this grant round are to help reach and support vulnerable young people (predominantly aged 10 to 14) at risk of youth violence, and to learn the best ways to provide support under social distancing and stay-at-home guideline
This Endowment Fund will fund and evaluate work which supports vulnerable young people (predominantly aged 10 to14) at risk of youth violence, and can be delivered whilst adhering to UK government social distancing and stay at home guidance. 50% of the total funding available will be reserved for charities and social enterprises.
