Round one of applications for the Young Londoners Fund and the Sport Unites Small Grants Fund closed in July 2018. Round two will open in May 2019.
Apply for the Young Londoners Fund
The Mayor has created the Young Londoners Fund to help London's children and young adults make the most of our amazing city.
The new £45 million Young Londoners Fund will help children and young people to fulfil their potential, particularly those at risk of getting caught up in crime. It will support a range of education, sport, cultural and other activities.
The Young Londoners Fund aims to:
- provide aspirational and positive activities to help support young people to make positive choices and reach their potential
- give new options to children and young people most at risk of taking the wrong path and stop them getting involved in violence and criminal activity
- improve coordination and capacity of London's youth offer so more children and young people can access services

We are looking for organisations to run projects that support children and young people in London to make positive choices.
Organisations can apply providing they meet the criteria listed in the Young Londoners Fund Prospectus.
Please note the updated Prospectus and Application Form Guidance for round two will be published in May 2019.
A series of Project Development Workshops were held in February 2019 for organisations who might want to apply for the fund. The workshop resources, which include worksheets, exemplar application answers and presentations from Young Londoners Fund holders, can be downloaded by everyone.
