About the Newcastle Youth Fund

The Newcastle Youth Fund has been created by young people and organisations that support young people across Newcastle, working in partnership with the National Lottery Community Fund.

Young people will be involved in the design and delivery of the activities and will have a key role in decision making to award the funds. The new funds will give young people a direct say in the design of services in their localities and help shape the city’s post-Covid recovery and further into the future. Please see the Youth Panel Section below for more information about how Young People can get involved.

The Youth Fund will support activities that engage and inspire young people, support their emotional health and physical wellbeing and build community resilience.  Activities should reduce risk taking behaviours – such as anti-social behaviour, promote social and emotional well-being – and be educational and inclusive.
