    For too long, young people have been left out of the decisions that affect them the most. 

    The Co-op Foundation, in partnership with Co-op and the #iwill Fund, are tackling this through the £4.5m Young Gamechangers Fund.

    They’re looking for young activists, campaigners, disrupters, co-operators, and social entrepreneurs to lead youth-led social action across the UK. There are two types of funding available:  

    • Funding for individuals  
    • Funding for groups or organisations with an annual income of less than £250,000 

    They will prioritise support for young activists who are committed to creating communities that are prosperous, safe, diverse, equitable and inclusive, healthy, and sustainable. In particular they’re seeking to support groups and communities that prioritise youth activism and shared power. 

    The Young Gamechangers Fund is delivered by the Global Fund for Children and Restless Development, alongside the Co-op Foundation. In addition to funding, successful applicants will also get access to peer support networks, training and mentoring to help their vision come to life – putting young people at the heart of change. 

    Young people have built this Fund from the ground up, co-designing branding and developing every aspect of the fund from the application process through to grant decisions. Find out more about their youth steering group.

    The closing date for applications is 11.59am on Tuesday 19 December 2023.
