The Local Youth Fund offers young people the opportunity to bid for projects and activities that have a benefit to them and the communities they live in.

Violent crime has no place in communities, and through our Local Youth Fund, young people have the chance to put forward their ideas on how they think crime can be prevented.

Thanks to previous rounds of this fund, over £42,000 has already made a difference to around 5,200 young people through projects and activities they have developed themselves, including a variety of sports activities, training programmes for personal development, improving local areas and a focus on health and well-being.

There are currently no funding rounds available.

We will update this page when funding is available. In the meantime, you can view the results of previous funding rounds here.
