Expression of Interest and Eligibility Checker

The Youth Endowment Fund's targeted project funding is for practices that don’t fit into our themed rounds or place-based funding, but are widely used or promising with the potential to scale. We will provide the resources to fund, evaluate and learn from them.

We are only likely to make up to five targeted project grants each year and have already filled this allocation for 2021.  We are hoping to open the funding back up in the Autumn of 2021, if you’d like to express your interest in the funding and check your eligibility, please complete the below form.

Once funding re-opens, applications will be assessed both individually and competitively against other proposals submitted during the same rolling period.

We will prioritise applications from organisations that:
  • Are reaching the highest number of children across multiple regions (strand one).
  • Are ready for large scale trials earlier.
  • Have the greatest potential to achieve change at scale. This could be through you directly scaling up your programme, others learning from what you do or by your programme leading to a change in the system.
  • Have secured significant match funding, this usually means at least £1 for every £1 of YEF funding.

For more information about our targeted projects funding, please read our guidance document or visit our website. If you have any questions, please email .
