Funding: Youth Social Action Fund


BBC Children in Need, in partnership with the #iwill Fund and The Hunter Foundation, is delivering a £3 million fund to support organisations to embed youth social action across the UK.

This fund will help to build children and young people’s confidence and skills, empowering them to take an active and leading role in developing solutions to issues which affect their lives and their communities. It will support organisations to bring social action and youth empowerment opportunities to children and young people, to help prevent or overcome the effects of the disadvantages they face. 

The funders especially want to reach:

  • Organisations who focus on addressing issues of disadvantage affecting children and young people
  • Children and young people who have some experience of social action and want to develop their skills and experience to do more.
  • Children and young people who have no experience of social action work at all but want to find out what it is all about.

The Youth Social Action Fund will offer up to £15,000 to unregistered organisations and up to £50,000 to registered bodies.
