Back to funding directory

The Youth Work Education Recovery Fund will enable the sector to support young people in some of the country's most vulnerable communities engage and re-engage with vital learning opportunities.

The fund will be administered by YouthLink Scotland and is open for applications from Community Learning and Development services working with young people to build confidence and skills; support their mental health and wellbeing; and those that address the poverty-related attainment gap.

Funding awards of £20,000-£60,000 are available, with the aim of strengthening youth work and schools partnerships, increasing access to outdoor learning opportunities, and increasing the youth work provision for families and communities disproportionately disadvantaged by Covid-19.

The closing date for applications is 14 October 2021. Lead applicants must be a public body or not-for-profit organisation.
