The Million Hours Fund
Closing Date: –
Grants are available for youth organisations working in anti-social hotspots in England to provide more out-of-school activities for young people (aged 11 to 18 years; up to 25 years with disabilities and special educational needs) in areas of high need through the summer holidays.
The funding will support a range of youth services offering a variety of positive activities for young people in eligible wards in England with the highest reported numbers of antisocial behaviour incidents.
The funding is for projects that give young people (aged 11 to 18 years; up to 25 years with disabilities and special educational needs) somewhere safe to go, something engaging to do and someone trusted to talk to during the summer holidays.
The funding will support additional youth workers, volunteers, venue hire, activity resources as well as youth workers’ engagement with young people in the areas they already spend time in, such as parks and leisure facilities. The aim is to reach those young people ‘who are particularly at risk of falling onto the wrong path’.
