Youth Justice Sport Fund

Deadline 5th December 2022

This new £5million government fund is being provided by the Ministry of Justice and delivered by the Sport for Development Coalition, led by StreetGames and Alliance of Sport in Criminal Justice. It will use sport to enhance positive outcomes for vulnerable young people in the context of youth crime. The funds will support voluntary and community sports organisations to carry out targeted work supporting children and young people who are at risk of entering the criminal justice system.

Funding is intended to meet the following two key goals:

  • Support vulnerable young people, aged 10 to 17, at risk of involvement in crime, anti-social behaviour and serious violence through involvement in local sporting activities.
  • Through capacity building, increase the capability of sport sector delivery organisations to work effectively with their local criminal justice partners, including Youth Justice Services, Police and Police Crime Commissioners (PCC)/Violence Reduction Unit (VRU) structures.

t is expected that the average grant value will be around £20,000.
