As part of the Government’s Serious Violence Strategy, the Home Office have made £200 million available over the next ten years to fund and test interventions aiming to prevent young people from being drawn in to crime and violence, to build up our knowledge of what works in this area.
The Endowment Fund, run by youth charity Impetus, in partnership with the Early Intervention Foundation (EIF) and Social Investment Business (SIB), supports interventions and community partnerships working with children aged between 10-14 at risk of being drawn into crime and violence, and build up our knowledge of what works to prevent that.
In this initial funding round, two-year grants are available for organisations and community partnerships with a track record of working with young people, to fund and evaluate promising approaches to preventing youth offending that have not yet gathered strong evidence of their impact.
This year, the Youth Endowment Fund will dispense funds in three ways. It will:
- Run a one-off, open call round, to fund and evaluate promising approaches to preventing youth offending which have not yet gathered strong evidence of their impact. In this round, grantees will need to spend £100,000 or more by March 2020.
- Fund a smaller number of programmes with good evidence of impact and which are ready for large scale evaluation.
- Support two local partnerships in areas with high levels of youth crime to develop a multi-stakeholder response to preventing youth offending, evaluate and learn to inform our approach to place-based work.
Deadline: Friday 28 June 2019, 12pm
