Grants to support young people at risk of offending

22 November, 2023

Grants are available to registered charities, charitable incorporated organisations, and in exceptional circumstances Community Interest Companies working to support ex-offenders, young offenders, or young people at risk of offending.

The funding is being made available through the Weavers' Company who will prioritise projects that support offenders into work; and projects that work with less popular groups in society.  A secondary priority is given to supporting projects that work with young people from disadvantaged and socio-economically challenged groups, such as immigrants, to ensure they are given every possible chance to realise their full potential and to participate fully in society.

There are two funding streams:

  • Small Grants Programme up to £5,000
  • Main Grants programme  -  no maximum grant limit

The funding is available for both project and core costs. Applicants must show they have investigated other sources of funding and made plans for future funding.

The next closing date for applications is the 14th March 2024.
