Funding to help young people aged 14-24 overcome barriers to finding meaningful work

This funding will go to organisations working with young people aged 14-24 to help overcome barriers to finding meaningful work. They are looking for approaches that can be tested, evaluated and, where proven to be effective, expanded to more young people.

Two types of grants are available.

  1. Development Grants -£30,000 – £100,000 pa for delivery and development, for up to 2 years supporting over 50 young people per year.
  2. Impact Grants - c£100,000 – £800,000 pa for delivery + an independent evaluation paid for separately by Youth Futures, for up to 5 years, supporting over 150 young people per year.

Not-for-profit voluntary or community-sector organisations, or statutory organisations applying individually or as a lead organisation on behalf of a partnership or consortia, which: offer an existing or new solution to youth unemployment and have clearly outlined planned activities, which link to getting young people into work.
