About the grants

For the 9th year running London Youth is partnering with CVC and with additional funding from partner, RDAS, to offer our members grants to run employability focused activities for young people during the summer holidays. Since it’s inception, we’ve distributed over £500,000 in funding to support young Londoners over a crucial period in the summer holidays.

This year, we are funding member organisations to creatively empower and support young people aged 14+ effectively in thinking about their future and supporting their personal and professional development. London Youth will be distributing £135,000 of funding to projects that provide support, training, and skills-based opportunities to young Londoners and give them the knowledge and skills to succeed in life.

Member organisations will have the flexibility to tailor the programme based on the needs of their young people and the local need.  

We are offering members the opportunity to apply for a grant of up to £4,000 to support their summer delivery and are looking to fund projects that are innovative and creative in supporting young people to think about their future prospects.
