UK Youth Announces £2million COVID Relief Fund

Funding Talk: UK Youth Announces £2million COVID Relief Fund.

Tuesday, November 17, 2020 from 2:00 PM3:00 PM

Grants of up to £50,000 to be awarded to Small Youth Organisations based in England which have been hardest hit by the impact of Covid .
  UK Youth are delighted to announce that it has secured £2,000,000 in funding to support small youth organisations who have not had access to the crisis funding they require to survive the COVID-19 pandemic.

The UK Youth Fund – Covid Relief is funded through the DCMS Community Match Challenge scheme, with funding from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS), Pears Foundation and Paul Hamlyn Foundation as part of the Government’s £750m charities package. The grants are available to organisations that have lost funding, face the threat of closure, or had to reduce delivery or services supporting young people, and will directly support young people.
Awarded organisations can use the funds to cover staff salaries, project running costs, organisational development and goods and equipment which supports delivery. Organisations which are based and deliver work in England, with a turnover of less than £250,000, will be eligible to apply for grants of up to £50,0000 to ensure the fund can reach as many organisations as possible.

The application process will be open until midday on 25th November.

Guest Speaker: Lindsay Marsden , UK Youth.
