Young London Inspired - Multi Year Grants

Funding Available £10,000 - £30,000
Application Deadline Applications closed 9 July 2018


As part of the Mayor's Young Londoners Fund, we are offering grants totalling £500,000 to organisations who work with young people. The Mayor has created the Fund to help children and young adults make the most of our amazing city. The Fund will help them 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.

Young London Inspired - Multi Year Grants

We are offering grants of £10,000 - £30,000 per year, for up to three years, to community groups, small charities and voluntary sector organisations to run projects which encourage young Londoners to volunteer or take part in social action.

The projects can focus on any area of volunteering or social action such as sports, arts, media, environment, inter-generational or music. The projects must use volunteering and social action to improve emotional resilience, good mental health and wellbeing.

The majority of young participants will be new to volunteering and will come from groups that are disproportionately affected by mental health issues such as those within the criminal justice system or young refugees or asylum seekers. Detailed guidance is given in our application guidance notes referenced below. Please read these before applying to make sure your activity fits the fund criteria.

The Young London Inspired Multi Year Grants will fund projects which:

  • Work with 10 – 20 year olds on volunteering and/or social action projects which promote wellbeing and emotional resilience.
  • Demonstrate how volunteering and/or social action positively impacts on young people’s wellbeing and emotional resilience.

During 2018, up to eight grants will be distributed to projects that should be completed by the end of September 2021.
