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.
Impetus transforms the lives of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds by ensuring they get the right support to succeed in school, in work and in life. They find, fund and build the most promising charities working with these young people, providing core funding and working shoulder-to-shoulder with their leaders to help them become stronger organisations. In partnership with other funders they help their charities expand and influence policy and decision makers so that all young people get the support they need.
Funding from
Home Office
In 2019, the Home Office made £200m available over ten years to create The Youth Endowment Fund, as part of its long-term plan to tackle serious violence. Impetus won a competitive tender to run the Fund.
