UK Youth Fund in partnership with Pears Foundation

Active Derbyshire, Active Notts, Funding, News

This new fund is a three-year unrestricted grant programme aimed at mitigating the impact the cost of living crisis is having on the youth sector.

The UK Youth Fund in partnership with Pears Foundation will provide targeted funding to youth organisations delivering high quality youth work to ensure doors stay open, bills get paid and youth workers receive the salaries they deserve. This will help to ensure young people continue to be supported at this most difficult of times by the youth organisations and youth workers on whom they’ve come to depend.

Youth organisations with an annual income less than £500,000 are able to apply. The fund will offer three-year unrestricted grants of approximately 10% of the current turnover of applicant organisations to reflect the current inflation rate, and organisations will hear the outcome of their application within 4-6 weeks.

Regular webinars are being held between now and May 2023, giving an opportunity for you to join the grants team as they talk through the entire application process and give advice on how to make a strong application.

Register to attend via Eventbrite.

There is currently no fixed closing date as the application window will stay open while funds still remain to be distributed. Applications will be assessed as they come in, so you should apply when you are ready.
