Paul Hamyln Foundation - Youth Fund


The Youth Fund supports organisations whose main purpose is about helping young people (aged 14-25) in the most precarious positions, where making the transition to adult independence is most challenging. It supports organisations which work with young people experiencing disadvantage in a way that recognises and builds on their strengths and potential.

They will provide core funding to help grow an organisations impact, including: part funding the salary of a key individual; policy work; fundraising or income generation capacity; upgrading IT systems or website; installing a new database to capture data; staff training or development; running costs such as utilities and other bills.

The Fund will be restricted to organisations which have the potential to grow their impact by:

  • replicating a programme or service
  • widening the reach of an idea or innovation
  • spreading a technology or skill
  • advancing policy or enhancing its implementation.
