Through their 'Youth in Focus' programme, the Big Lottery Fund are making up to £30 million available for big projects in England that support vulnerable young people through difficult changes in their lives...

There are certain groups of young people who need more support at important stages in their lives. Youth in Focus aims to help some of these young people through a targeted programme  for specific groups of young people.  The minimum grant is £500,000 and the groups the Big Lottery Fund are targeting are:

  • Young carers - Helping young people between the ages of 10 and 25 to be heard and get better access to practical advice and services, which can support their day to day lives.
  • Young people leaving care - Supporting young people between the ages of 15 and 25, so they get better access to education, housing, healthcare and employment advice and services.
  • Young people leaving youth offenders’ institutions - Helping young people between the ages of 15 and 25 to develop their life skills and get better access to services, particularly young men with learning difficulties and young women.
