Challenge and Change Fund

The Challenge and Change fund has £80,000 to invest in young people aged 18-25 working across England.

Young people can apply for grants between £1,000 to £10,000 to take their work to the next level.

This fund embraces and acknowledges that there are young people across England directly affected by injustices who are tirelessly working to speak out against those injustices. e.g:

  • young people experiencing poverty,

  • young people with disabilities,

  • single teenage mothers,

  • young care leavers and carers,

  • young people of colour, young migrants and refugees,

  • young people who’ve had contact with the criminal justice system .

All young people who want to challenge and change laws, policies, practices, and cultures that have directly affected their lives and the communities they share those experiences with.

We fund – Individuals (directly) aged 18-25. – Constituted or unconstituted groups led by young people aged 18-25 (e.g community and/or grassroots groups, networks, movements or projects etc). – Organisations founded by and/or led by young people aged 18-25 (e.g. charities, social enterprises).
