Round 1 – Preventing youth crime and violence: open call
Focus: children aged 10 -14
The Youth Endowment Fund is a new attempt to put early intervention at the heart of efforts to tackle youth offending.
It will support interventions and community partnerships working with children at risk of being drawn into crime and violence, and build up our knowledge of what works to prevent that.
They are launching an open call round, to fund and evaluate interventions primarily targeting young people aged 10-14 who are judged to be at risk of being drawn into crime and violence.
Applications are welcomed from charities and social enterprises, public sector agencies (including schools, local authorities, police forces) and for-profit organisations operating in England and/or Wales. Organisations can apply in partnership, with one organisation as the lead applicant.
Applicants need to have experience of working with young people (either directly, or indirectly in a way which improves their outcomes) and if the funding is sought for an existing intervention, it must be used to expand this work.
