Newcastle Youth Fund

Newcastle Youth Fund

The Newcastle Youth Fund is how we provide funds to support activities and services for:

  • young people aged between 13 and 19 years old
  • people up to 25 years old who have special educational needs and disabilities

It was created by young people and organisations that support young people in the city, working with the National Lottery Community Fund.

The Fund supports activities that:

  • engage and inspire young people
  • support their social, emotional and physical wellbeing
  • build community resilience
  • reduce risk taking behaviours – such as anti-social behaviour
  • are educational and inclusive

The Fund means young people:

  • have a direct say in the services available where they live
  • are involved in the design and delivery of the activities
  • have a key role in deciding who is awarded funds
  • help the city’s post-Covid recovery and what its future will look like

To play your part in the decision making process:

Apply for funding

Voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations can apply for:

  • between £10,001 and £25,000
