The Youth Endowment Fund (YEF) opens a £500,000 research round

YEF LOOKS TO FUND SECONDARY DATA ANALYSIS, TO BETTER UNDERSTAND YOUNG people’s experiences of violence, the drivers and what works to prevent it.
  • YEF opens a call for research proposals, which use secondary data analysis to address key questions about violence prevention policy and practice.
  • All proposals will have to fit within one of YEF’s current funding themes: diversion from the criminal justice system, family support or education.
  • The research round will fund between 2-5 projects that deliver outputs within 12-18 months of being commissioned.
  • Applications open on Monday 30th May and close at 5pm Friday 24th June 2022 for initial expressions of interest.

The Youth Endowment Fund (YEF) is a charity with a mission that matters. 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.

We’re committed to delivering the highest quality evidence for young people. We want to learn about young people’s experiences of violence, the drivers and what works to prevent it. To support this, we’re launching a £500,000 research round.

We’re asking for proposals that exploit existing secondary data sources that address key questions for policy and practice. In this call we’re asking for research proposals that fit with the themes of our current funding rounds:

We expect to approve around 2-5 projects that deliver outputs within 12-18 months of being commissioned. We’re interested in proposals which use national datasets as well as those that may be held locally. We’d welcome bids from researchers and data owners who have existing research partnerships (such as police forces, VRUs, local authorities etc.) who want to get the most out of their data.

To find out more about the round, the types of research we’re looking for and how to apply, download our full call for proposals.

Applications open on Monday 30th May and close at 5pm Friday 24th June 2022 for initial expressions of interest.
