What is the Youth Investment Fund?

The Youth Investment Fund (YIF) is made up of £288m capital and up to £80m revenue grants and is funded by the UK Government.

The fund is being delivered by Social Investment Business, in partnership with the National Youth Agency (NYA)Key Fund and Resonance to:

  • Improve the health and wellbeing of young people
  • Equip young people with skills for work and life

Our aim is to deliver grants for up to 300 facilities that:

  • represent positive value for money,
  • are environmentally sustainable,
  • and enable positive activities for young people aged 11 to 18 (up to 25 for young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities)

in eligible places across England, by 2024/25.
