Fund title: Youth Endowment Fund
Focus of fund/fund aims:
Funding to support early interventions to tackle youth offending by supporting activities and organisations working with children at risk of being drawn into crime and violence
23 July 2019
The Youth Endowment Fund (YEF) has been launched as part of the Government’s Serious Violence Strategy and is being run by the charity Impetus, working in partnership with the Early Intervention Foundation and Social Investment Business.
An ‘open call round’ has been launched, to provide two-year grants for organisations and community partnerships with a track record of working with young people, to fund and evaluate promising approaches to preventing youth offending that have not yet gathered strong evidence of their impact. Interventions under this round should primarily target young people aged 10-14 years old.
Applications can be made by charities and social enterprises, public sector agencies (including schools, local authorities, police forces) and for-profit organisations operating in England and/or Wales. Organisations can apply in partnership, with one organisation as the lead applicant.
Interventions will be expected to have a robust and clear theory of change, which explains how they will reduce offending and is 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 – March 2020).
