The unprecedented coronavirus outbreak has brought great uncertainty. Many organisations are understandably anxious about the impact on their future funding, delivery and – most importantly – the young people they support.

We would like to reassure all our grantees, evaluators and partners that we understand the pressure of these exceptional circumstances. Over the coming days and weeks, we’ll be working closely with our funded projects and evaluators to find the best way forward together through these challenging times. As a partnership, we are considering all the options open to us.

Following government guidance, the physical offices of our three partner organisations – Impetus, Early Intervention Foundation and Social Investment Business – will be closed until further notice. We are lucky to be able to work remotely, so we are available and contactable as normal.

For general enquiries about the Youth Endowment Fund, please continue to contact us on the usual channels:

Or get in touch directly with the member of the team you have been working with.

Though we know there will be unavoidable disruptions to both our funded projects and planned activities, we remain absolutely committed to delivering our ten-year mission to prevent young people from being drawn into crime and violence.

Do please get in touch if we can help and we will try to respond as swiftly as possible.

Jon Yates

Executive Director, Youth Endowment Fund
