Fund title: Youth Endowment Fund: a supportive home
Focus of fund/fund aims:
Grants for projects that help to identify the most effective ways of helping families and carers to create a supportive home environment for children who are most at risk of becoming involved in violence
1 December 2021
The Youth Endowment Fund (YEF) provides funding for projects to prevent children and young people becoming involved in violence. The YEF is working with Comic Relief for this funding round which has a theme of ‘A supportive home: helping families to overcome challenges.’
Grants are available for projects that help families and carers to create a supportive home environment for 6- to 14-year-old children (or children aged up to 18 years old if they are in the care system), reducing the likelihood of them becoming involved in violence.
Through this round, the YEF is interested in four types of family support:
- Parenting programmes (including programmes for foster carers or people working with children in residential care), which help parents and their children to develop positive behaviours and relationships.
- Family therapy interventions (including for children in foster care), which offer whole families structured forms of therapy.
- Programmes to reduce parental conflict, which are specifically designed to improve relationships between parents or carers.
- Domestic abuse interventions, which are specifically designed to prevent and reduce harm to children and adults
Applications can be made by all types of organisation in the public, private and voluntary sectors. You must be a registered legal entity such as a registered charity, company, statutory body or CIC.
Through this round, the YEF intends to spend between £6 million to £10 million in total on funding five to ten projects.
