The Youth Endowment Fund is a bold new attempt to put early intervention at the heart of efforts to tackle youth offending.
It will support interventions and community partnerships working with children at risk of being drawn into crime and violence, and build up our knowledge of what works to prevent that.
The Youth Endowment Fund is looking to fund and evaluate interventions primarily targeting children aged 10-14 who are judged to be at risk of being drawn into crime and violence. Grantees will, as a minimum, need to have a clear theory of change which explains how they reduce offending, informed by available evidence. 1-2 year grants of around £200,000 per year are available.
