FUNDING: Berkeley Foundation – Resilience Fund for organisations working with Young People

October 28, 2021

We believe that every young person has enormous potential, and support organisations that take a positive approach to encouraging young people, helping them build resilience, overcome barriers, and take control of their futures.

The new Resilience Fund, represents a £900,000 investment in strengthening the voluntary sector over the next four years.

The Fund will provide support for local and grassroots charities to invest in their ability to anticipate, prepare for, respond and adapt to challenge, building resilience for the future.

In its first year, the fund will target building resilience in organisations working to enable young people, aged 16-25, to overcome barriers to work and kick-start their careers.

What does our Resilience Fund offer to voluntary sector organisations?
Eligible organisations will be able to apply for up to £30,000 over two years. The funding will run alongside a learning and evaluation programme, focused on highlighting best practice and supporting peer learning. Where there is an alignment of skills and needs, successful applicants will be able to access pro bono support, mentoring and additional resources from the Berkeley Foundation and the wider Berkeley Group.
In its first year, the Fund will be open for applications until 6 February 2022, with two decision making points in December 2021 and March 2022.
