Fund Launched for Infrastructure Organisations Working to Address Youth Unemployment

01 June 2020/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

In response to the coronavirus/COVID-19 crisis, the Youth Futures Foundation is providing resilience funding for infrastructure organisations in England that support the needs of frontline organisations which are delivering effective solutions to youth unemployment.

Grants worth up to 30% of the organisation’s income are available for:

  • National infrastructure bodies that strengthen the youth and/or employment sector across England for all young people.

  • National or regional infrastructure bodies that strengthen the youth and/or employment sector specifically for young people from Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic backgrounds, including those of Gypsy, Roma & Traveller Heritage.

The grants can be used as unrestricted funding, including covering core costs.

There will be two funding rounds and organisations that have an urgent funding need due to coronavirus/COVID-19 should apply during the first funding round in order to access support more quickly.

The first deadline for applications is midnight on 18 June 2020 for a decision by the end of July.
