In partnership with Julia and Hans Rausing, we launched The UK Youth Fund: Thriving Minds an ambitious fund for projects that improve mental health support and provision for young people. The initial £10m pot provided by Julia and Hans Rausing has been boosted by an additional £1m from the Westminster Foundation.
We are pleased to announce that 99 charities and not-for-profit organisations across the UK are being awarded grants of up to £50,000 a year, over the next three years. Organisations will also be supported with a tailored package of extra support including workshops, training and by building communities of best practice.
The UK Youth Fund: Thriving Minds supports not-for-profit organisations in the UK with an annual income of less than £500,000, whose primary purpose is supporting children and young people aged 8-25. The fund received more than 1,000 applications worth over £30m a year.
