The Yorkshire Young Achievers Foundation provides direct support to young people, and projects helping those young people, across the region. To date the Foundation has raised in excess of £1.2m. The Foundation’s activities also include holding the annual Yorkshire Young Achievers Awards which mark the achievements of young people in the region.
The Foundation’s foremost objective is to support the mental, educational, spiritual, cultural, moral and physical development, health and improvement of young people under 35 who were born, are connected to, work or live within Yorkshire so that they can develop their full capacities and become members of society with improved conditions of life and health.
The maximum grant to any one recipient will normally be £5,000 in any year. Apply any time.
