The Triangle Trust 1949 Trust's Young Offender Grants supports projects that work with young people with criminal convictions and those who are at high risk of committing a first offence. In 2023, the organisation will fund work that uses a Sport for Development approach to reduce reoffending and first offence rates.
The fund runs two grant rounds each year – one for work supporting young people with a criminal conviction on their record and one for those considered high-risk and on the edge of the criminal justice system.
Funding can only be used to work with young offenders- even if your organisation works with vulnerable young people more broadly. The Trust will prioritise proposals that provide specialist support to target:
young people who are from Black or minoritised/racialised communities (often referred to as Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic, or BAME, communities),
young women and girls, and
young people who have experienced the care system
