About us

The Youth Endowment Fund was established in March 2019 by children’s charity Impetus, with a £200m endowment and ten year mandate from the Home Office.

Our mission

We’re here to prevent children and young people becoming involved in violence. We do this by finding out what works and building a movement to put this knowledge into practice.

The YEF Committee

The Youth Endowment Fund Committee oversees the work of the Fund, reporting to the Impetus Board.
