Youth Endowment Fund

3rd June 2019

The Youth Endowment Fund is open to applications from charities and social enterprises in England and/or Wales. Funding is available to run and evaluate interventions lasting at least 12 months that target young people aged 10 to 14 who are at risk of being drawn into crime and violence.

Applicants need to have experience of working with young people. If the funding is sought for an existing intervention, it must be used to expand this work.

“Interventions need to have a clear theory of change which explains how they reduce offending, informed by the available evidence.”

“Applicants can apply for up to two years of funding, and although there is no upper limit, applicants must be in a position to use the first £100,000 of funding within the first six months of the grant (October 2019 to March 2020).”


Please read the guidance notes before completing the application form.

The deadline for applications is 23 July 2019 (midday).
