Not for profit youth organisations that support young people (aged 14 – 25) facing disadvantage can apply for grants of between 10,000 and £60,000 through the Paul Hamlyn Foundation Youth Fund.
The funding is available for up to two-years and will support the core operating costs of the applicant organisation. Examples of what can be funded include part-funding the salary of a key individual, whether the Chief Executive or a post such as:
- A Head of Operations/Finance
- Policy work
- Additional fundraising or income generation capacity
- Upgrading IT systems or website to reach young people online; etc.
There is a two-stage application process. Stage 1 applications can be submitted at any time by completing an online application form answering a standard set of questions.
Applicants that are invited to second stage, will be asked to submit further information and the Paul Hamlyn Foundation will arrange a meeting, visit or phone call with the applicant organisation’s Chief Executive.
