Call for a strategic partner to deliver end to end grant-making

Nov 8, 2019

The Youth Futures foundation is seeking a strategic partner to deliver end to end grant-making administrative services for our first grant-making round.

The funding round will provide grant funding, alongside advice and capacity building support, to youth employment organisations in England, who can demonstrate promising practice at delivering support services to disadvantaged and under-served young people, which enables them to overcome multiple barriers and find sustainable, meaningful employment.

The Youth Futures Foundation was established in March 2019 and is seeking to address youth unemployment, focusing on the disparities in youth unemployment revealed in the Government’s Race Disparity Audit and on young people a long way from the labour market.

The first grant-making round is focused on funding organisations already working on this issue and that can demonstrate promising practice at supporting young people who face multiple barriers. This could include differences between ethnic groups, or supporting young people who are care experienced, have been young offenders, and have learning or physical disabilities, for example. The funding would help these organisations to expand delivery to more young people, and work towards high-quality evaluations of the most promising approaches.

For more information, or to request a copy of the Invitation to Tender, please contact Matthew Poole, matthew@youthfuturesfoundation.org.

Applications close: 12pm, 4th December 2019
