The Inspiring Futures programme is open for applications from Friday 10th July until 11:30am on Friday 31st July, 2020.
BBC Children in Need and Youth Futures Foundation are partnering to deliver Inspiring Futures, a £6 million programme to fund positive activities which support children and young people to achieve their potential on their journey towards employment.
The COVID-19 pandemic is heightening existing challenges for children and young people looking to access further education, training, and work.
There are concerns that the impact of lockdown and prolonged social distancing post-lockdown will have a particularly detrimental effect on those who are already struggling to gain employment, and it will also reduce the opportunity for others to learn the skills and gain experiences that would help them gain employment when they are older.
Eligible organisations will be able to apply for between £10,000 and £80,000 for work commencing in October 2020.The Inspiring Futures programme is for not-for-profit organisations within the UK.
All applications must meet their Minimum Standards for Grantmaking. These standards are on safeguarding, governance and finances. Not meeting these standards is the most common reason organisations do not get assessed.
