Crisis funding for youth organisations

Young people's charity UK Youth is providing £2 million in funding to smaller youth organisations that have been impacted by the pandemic.

The UK Youth Fund - Covid Relief is open to youth organisations with an income of under £250,000, that are based in, and deliver their work in England. Grants of up to £50,000 are available.

The funding comes from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) Community Match Challenge scheme - part of the government’s £750m commitment to support charities during the pandemic announced in April.

Charities affected by the crisis can use the money towards staff salaries, project running costs, organisational development and goods and equipment which supports delivery. UK Youth said it is “particularly keen to hear from organisations that support young people who are most affected by systemic oppression and discrimination”, including those from ethnic minority communities, who are disabled or identify as LGBT+.

In order to start your application, you will need to take part in a questionnaire. Applicants don't have long to apply, the deadline for submissions is Wednesday 25 November 2020.
