Cost of Living Support Available for Youth Organisations across the UK

Charitable and not-for-profit youth organisations delivering high-quality youth provision whose work is being hindered, curtailed, or cut back due to rising core costs can apply for funding to address these unprecedented demands.

UK Youth, in partnership with Pears Foundation, is offering unrestricted multi-year grants for charitable and not-for-profit youth organisations across the UK with an annual turnover of less than £500,000 to help them cover rising prices and increased costs due to the cost-of-living crisis.

Through the Cost-of-Living Fund, a total of £4.5 million is available to provide multi-year grants of approximately 10% of the turnover of an organisation per year. For example, an organisation with a turnover of £250,000 can apply for up to £25,000 a year for three years. These are intended to help bring stability to youth organisations and to help mitigate the impact of the cost-of-living crisis, ensuring groups can cover bills, pay staff salaries, and continue to operate.

Successful applicants will receive three grant payments, each a year apart.

Applications can be submitted at any time.
