Paul Hamlyn Foundation – Youth Fund

Grants are open to organisations whose ambition is working with and for young people (aged 14-25) who face complex transitions to adulthood.

Grants of up to £150,000 spread over three years with a maximum of £50,000 per year.

As one of the largest independent grant-making foundations in the UK, the Foundation partners with inspiring organisations and individuals to make sure that people facing disadvantage are at the heart of leading change and designing solutions to overcome inequality.

The new UK strategy identifies five strategic priorities relating to changes the PHF wishes to see in the UK. These are:

  • Investing in young people
  • Migration and integration
  • Arts access and participation
  • Education and learning through the arts
  • Nurturing ideas and people

The fund aims to support organisations to:

  • Sustain, grow or prepare to grow the organisation’s impact.
  • Improve, consolidate and spread practices which empower young people to shape their lives and lead change (sometimes called asset-based approaches).
  • Support and champion people with lived experience in the leadership and operational delivery of this work, particularly people who are most affected by systemic oppression and or discrimination.
