COVID-19 Winter Support Funding Available for Youth Organisations in England

Funding is available to youth organisations in England to help ensure services providing vital support can remain open.

A new fund for local and national youth organisations, designed to help mitigate the impact of lost income during the winter period due to the coronavirus pandemic, is open for applications.

Applications will be accepted from grassroots youth clubs, uniformed youth groups, and national youth and umbrella organisations based in England.

Applicants must be one of the following:

  • A registered charity.
  • An incorporated not-for-profit organisation.
  • An incorporated Community Interest Company.

Grants are intended to cover essential business expenditure, such as staff salaries and operational costs, incurred between 1 November 2020 and 31 March 2021 that enable the organisation to remain viable, open, reopen or partially reopen, where this represents a value for money approach and where their service delivery is in line with Government COVID-19 guidance.

The following maximum levels of support are available:

  • Local organisations may request funding of up to whichever is the lower of:
    • 25% of their annual income; or
    • Deficit from November 2020 to March 2021; or
    • £250,000.
  • National organisations may request funding of up to whichever is the lower of:
    • 25% of their annual income; or
    • Deficit from November 2020 to March 2021; or
    • £2 million.

All grants must be spent by 31 March 2021.

The deadline for applications is 12 February 2021 (5pm).
