Paul Hamlyn Youth Fund

The Paul Hamlyn Foundation’s mission is to “help people overcome disadvantage and lack of opportunity, so that they can realise their potential and enjoy fulfilling and creative lives”.
The Foundation places particular focus on supporting both young people and the arts.
The Foundation’s principal strategic aims are to:
o Support imaginative people to nurture exciting ideas;
o Widen access and participation in the arts;
o Improve people’s education and learning through the arts;
o Show that the arts make a difference to people’s lives;
o Support the development and growth of organisations investing in young people and positive change; and
o Improve support for young people who migrate, and strengthen integration so that communities can live well together.
The Paul Hamlyn Youth Fund
Grants of between £10,000 and £60,000 are available for up to two years for organisations that:
o Are formally constituted;
o Ensure that a significant amount of their work benefits young people aged 14-25;
o Work in the UK;
o Work at either local, regional or national levels, or at more than one level;
o Provide direct services and/or second-tier support.
Priority will be given to organisations working in areas of social and economic deprivation outside of London, which the Indices of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) Mapper can help you identify (you'll need to have your whole screen open rather than just a window otherwise the mapper won't function).  
The Foundation normally makes around 30 awards each year through the  Youth Fund.
Applicants must be able to show that they:
o Seek to build on and develop young people’s strengths and talents, helping them to reach their potential;
o Are strongly committed to youth participation and voice and working in partnership with young people;
o Support young people to understand and realise their rights and entitlements;
o Collaborate with others to improve the lives of young people, including working across sector boundaries;
o Have a positive impact and has the potential to achieve more – perhaps through replication of the organisation’s approach, but also through spreading practice and knowledge, and influencing policy; and
o Are committed to using data and evidence to improve outcomes and increase the organisation’s impact.
The Fund will be restricted to organisations which have the potential to grow their impact by:
o Replicating a programme or service;
o Widening the reach of an idea or innovation;
o Spreading a technology or skill; or
o Advancing policy or enhancing its implementation.
Funding is not available for:
o Newly registered organisations that have yet to produce independently audited/ examined accounts;
