Find out how we can support you in making a change within the education sector, to support in the reduction of youth violence.

The purpose of the Youth Endowment Fund is to prevent children and young people from getting involved in violence. Our approach involves researching effective strategies and fostering a collective effort to implement these insights.

Through rigorous research and evaluation, we form ‘What Works’ in our Toolkit, as well as providing useful insights from leading practitioners.
