Grants of up to £50,000 are available to support small youth organisations based in England who have not had access to the crisis funding they need to survive the Covid-19 pandemic.
The £2 million UK Youth Fund – Covid Relief will support organisations with an income under £250,000 that have lost funding, face the threat of closure, or had to reduce delivery or services. Organisations that support young people who are most affected by systemic oppression and discrimination are encouraged to apply.
Funding is provided by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport, the Pears Foundation and the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, and can be used to cover costs such as staff salaries, running costs/overheads, and goods and equipment which supports delivery.
Organisations interested in applying are asked to complete a short questionnaire by 12pm on the 25th November 2020.
