Vulnerable and Disengaged Young People Fund

Please note that this fund is now closed for new applications. 

The Vulnerable and Disengaged Young People Fund, from the Cabinet Office Centre for Social Action, helped grow ambitious social action programmes to inspire Englandís most vulnerable young people. It was administered by the Social Investment Business on behalf of the Cabinet Office.

The fund helped 26 volunteering programmes provide crucial support for young people in vulnerable circumstances, including young offenders and care leavers. The programmes bring together volunteers and community organisations to help solve some of the big issues affecting vulnerable young people.

Successful organisations had a strong track record of reaching and creating positive impact for the most vulnerable young people as well being able to demonstrate strong evidence of need.

Applications were open from Friday 8 November till noon on 6 December 2013.
