COVID-19 Recovery Funding Available for Youth Centre Charities in England

The deadline for applications is 31 March 2021 (4pm).

17 March 2021/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

A new £8 million fund established to ensure the sustainability of local youth centres that have struggled due to COVID-19 is inviting applications.

Applications will be accepted from registered charities who run youth centres in England. They must offer youth services within a locality and operate out of a fixed space or venue. They should be at risk of being unable to re-open and resume services, of cutting provision, or of permanent closure for financial reasons by the end September 2021.

Charities may request the amount of grant needed to cover eligible costs for the period 1 April to 30 September 2021, where this is not met by other confirmed funding. The grant amount will be determined by how well the assessment criteria have been met and the relative financial need across successful applications.

The deadline for applications is 31 March 2021 (4pm).
