Youth Social Action Fund

Youth Social Action includes volunteering, fundraising and campaigning, as well as skills and confidence-building projects which work with young people.

We will prioritise projects that:

  • Seek to increase participation from young people from less affluent social economic groups and young people who might not usually take part in volunteering, campaigning and fundraising activities
  • Are working with young people at the younger end of the spectrum (10-14 years old)
  • Build the appetite of young people to continue with campaigning, fundraising and/or volunteering and leave a legacy of behaviour/activity after the funding stops
  • Involve young people in consultation, planning, delivery and evaluation
  • Give young people the opportunity to learn new skills and develop their potential and confidence
  • Give young people the platform to get their voice heard
  • Can address the six principles of Youth Social Action

This fund aims to develop opportunities rather than fund the ongoing costs of existing youth work. We are looking to fund organisations that involve young people in volunteering, campaigning and fundraising activities.

This is part of the UK-wide #iwill campaign which aims to make social action part of life for as many young people as possible by the year 2020. Through collaboration and partnership, it is spreading the word about the benefits of youth social action. Step Up To Serve, The National Lottery Community Fund and the Government Office for Civil Society have invested £2million this year to fund groups delivering youth social action opportunities. Community Foundations are expected to match this investment.
