Voluntary or community-sector organisations working with unemployed young people can apply for funding to help them overcome barriers to finding meaningful work.
The funding which is being made available through the Youth Futures Foundation is looking to new solution to youth unemployment that can be tested, evaluated and, where proven to be effective, expanded to reach more young people.
Two types of grants are available:
• Development Grants of between £30,000 and £150,000 per year for the delivery and development of new approaches over a 1-2-year period.
• Impact Grants of between £100,000 and £1.2million per year for the delivery of new innovative projects over a 1-5-year period.
Statutory organisations applying individually or as a lead organisation on behalf of a partnership or consortia can also apply.
Applications can be made at any time.
