Equipment Grants for Youth Clubs (UK)

Variety, the Childrens Charity, has grants of £250 to £600 available to youth organisations that are affiliated to either Ambition, UK Youth or the or National Association of Boys and Girls Clubs. The grants can be used to buy equipment to provide challenging activities that engage young people aged 8-18 and provide them with alternatives to becoming involved in the anti-social behaviour that often stems from boredom and peer pressure.

On occasion, applications for improvement of youth club premises, refurbishment of existing equipment or facilities will also be considered.

Applicants have to raise some of the funds and applications that have young people involved in the fundraising will be looked upon favourably.

There are no deadlines when applying and applications can be made at any time.

Please be aware that due to the Covid-19 crisis the funding process is likely to be delayed.

For further information or to discuss an application, potential applicants can call the Variety grants team on 0207 428 8100, or email
