Youth Funding from BlueSpark Foundation


Applications continue to be accepted from The BlueSpark Foundation to provide funding for projects which aim to improve the education and development of children and young people.

The BlueSpark Foundation says there is no maximum amount you can apply for however grants typically do not exceed £5,000. Grants will only be awarded for the amount requested in the application and will not be scaled back to a lesser amount.

The Foundation is especially interested in hearing from projects which might not happen at all or would only happen on a lesser scale without their support.

Projects which the Trustees consider to help enhance the self-confidence, team working skills and future employability of children and young people (aged 5-22) will be prioritised.

Match funding is not a prerequisite however, if an applicant is able to raise part of the cost of a project itself, The Foundation says this will be looked upon favourably particularly if you are apply for more than £2,000.

Because the funding scheme is available as a continuous rolling programme, there is NO deadline so applications can be made at any time.
