Youth Endowment Fund - COVID-19 Grant Round

Published date: 
Monday, 11th May 2020

Grants are available for organisations supporting young people at risk of youth violence in England and Wales. Through its COVID-19 grant round, YEF aims to reach and help vulnerable children (aged 10-14) at risk of youth violence who, as a result of coronavirus/COVID-19 and social distancing measures, have lost the support they rely on and have become increasingly invisible. It will fund and evaluate work taking place in England and Wales that both supports these vulnerable young people and can be delivered while adhering to UK government social distancing and stay-at-home guidelines. 

The minimum grant that organisations can apply for is £25,000

In this grant round, we will focus on funding and evaluating two key areas of work:


1) Digital/virtual delivery of programmes, specifically:

  • Remote/digital/virtual delivery of programmes delivered on a one-to-one basis
  • Remote/digital/virtual delivery of group-based programmes
  • Remote/digital/virtual delivery of guided self-help or interactive content 


2)Face-to-face activity that can be delivered whilst adhering to social distancing/stay at home guidelines, specifically:

  • Face-to-face activity delivered within schools, including activities to help vulnerable young people return to school
  • Face-to-face delivery of detached youth work 


Applications can be submitted until 3 June 2020 (midday). For more information or to apply click here
