UK Youth Announces £2million Covid Relief Fund

UK Youth have secured £2m in funding to support small youth organisations who have not had access to the crisis funding they require to survive the COVID-19 pandemic.

The grants are available to organisations that have lost funding, face the threat of closure, or had to reduce delivery or services supporting young people. Awarded organisations can use the funds to cover staff salaries, project running costs, organisational development and goods and equipment which supports delivery.

Organisations with a turnover of less than £250,000, will be eligible to apply for grants of up to £50K.

The application process will be open until midday on 25th November.

UK Youth is particularly keen to hear from organisations that support young people who are most affected by systemic oppression and discrimination. This includes Black, Asian and other groups who experience racism, Deaf/disabled people and those who identify as sitting at the intersections of several minoritized identities, those who identify as LGBT+, as well as those who have not had financial support growing up. Organisations can find out how to apply and read FAQs here.

A funding talk about the programme will be held Tue, 17 November 2020 at 14:00 – 15:00.
