Funding for Disadvantaged Young People

The Peter Cruddas Foundation provides funding for projects that benefit disadvantaged and disengaged young people in England and Wales.

The Foundation gives priority to programmes calculated to help disadvantaged young people (16 – 30) in the UK towards pathways into education, training and employment.

There is no minimum or maximum amount and projects can be funded for more than one year. Priority is given to applicants able to demonstrate that they can manage the amount they have applied for and how they intend to continue (if appropriate) after the funding has been spent.

Please note that the Foundation is not accepting applications for Capital Projects.

Projects previously supported include:

  • The Enterprise Bootcamp programme. This funding helps Bootstrap deliver the programme to young people and connect them with the Bootstrap community. The latest programme culminated in a pitching event at the end of 2016 where 15 young entrepreneurs pitched for funding. Collectively they were awarded more than £23,500 to start their own businesses.
  • The Challenge pilot scheme where young people were taken out of their “comfort zones” and challenged to devise viable and workable community projects for their community. The Challenge aims to put teams of diverse 16-year olds through a one-year training and community service scheme starting with a three-week summer camp and then 50 hours of social action to tackle local civic and youth-related issues.
