Infrastructure Grants

We are delighted to announce our new £2.9m Infrastructure Resilience Fund. 

Applications are now open.

We are seeking to work with infrastructure organisations that can demonstrate how they will help young people who face intersectional barriers move towards and into work, through equipping the organisations in their networks with the knowledge, skills, and connections to provide world class employment support and training. 

To be successful, organisations must be strong advocates of our mission, our ‘what works’ evidence-based approach and support our values.
