Variety – Youth Club Grants!


Variety have been supporting youth clubs and supplying them with essential equipment for 70 years.

Each year, they set aside funding to support youth clubs that work with the most disadvantaged young people through informal education, positive activity and skills development.

Variety fund tangible resources including, but not limited to:

  • Sports, gym and games equipment
  • Computers, printers and IT equipment
  • Photography and film equipment
  • Consoles, accessories and games
  • Arts and crafts materials
  • Musical instruments and recording equipment

They only provide part-funding for youth club grants and expect you to make a contribution towards the cost of the equipment. They encourage this contribution to come from the young people’s own fundraising events and there is no minimum contribution required.
