The new #iwill Fund launched to support Youth Social Action


The #iwill Fund aims to transform the culture of community engagement and social action among 10-20 year olds. Funding is available for regional and national organisations that develop opportunities for young people to participate in social action.

The first three match-funders have been announced that will distribute the funds from a central investment pot created by the Government and Big Lottery Fund. To find out more about applying check out the organisations below.

  • Pears Foundation will be supporting activity within education, health and social care as well as scaling and supporting successful models to grow or sustain.
  • UK Community Foundations will create small grants for local social action opportunities through their network of 43 Community Foundations across England.
  • Comic Relief will develop opportunities for young people from areas and backgrounds currently least likely to participate; working in co-production with young people over the next few months to design the initiative to launch in Spring 2017.
