Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport – Youth Covid-19 Support Fund
The £16.5 million Youth Covid-19 Support Fund, which was announced in November 2020, is open to grassroots youth clubs, uniformed youth groups, and national youth and umbrella organisations, to help to mitigate the impact of lost income during the winter period due to the coronavirus pandemic, and ensure services providing vital support can remain open. The funding has been allocated from the £750 million charities support package and £1.7m of the £16.5m has been allocated to vital youth work qualifications and training.
Applications for the Youth Covid-19 Support Fund opened on 15th of January. The Fund will be administered by PwC. Applications to the Fund will be open for five weeks, and will close at 5pm on the 19th February 2021.
To distribute funding as soon as possible, government will make initial awards on a rolling basis, prioritising those deemed to have the greatest need against the stated criteria.
