The Foundation is committed to transforming employment for young people. 

It recognises that achieving a systemic change will involve a joint effort of key stakeholders working with young people.

Grant programme

Funding is available for organisations working with young people aged 14-24 to help overcome barriers to finding meaningful work.

The Foundation is looking for approaches that can be tested, evaluated and, where proven to be effective, expanded to more young people.

The programme offers two types of grants:

1. Development Grants
£30,000 – £100,000 per year for delivery and development, for 1-2year projects. The project should aim to support over 50 young people per year into employment.

2. Impact Grants
£100,000 – £800,000 per year for delivery + an independent evaluation paid for separately by Youth Futures. Projects should aim to support over 150 young people per year into employment.
