About the Youth Investment Fund

The Youth Investment Fund (YIF) is a £368 million fund created by the UK government to create, expand and improve youth facilities and services in England to drive positive outcomes for young people.

YIF is being delivered by a partnership between Social Investment Business, The Key Fund, National Youth Agency and Resonance.

Together, we aim to deliver grants for up to 300 facilities in selected eligible areas across England by 2025 that represent positive value for money, are environmentally sustainable and enable positive activities for young people aged 11–18 (up to 25 for young people with SEND).

This funding will drive value-for-money facilities that youth organisations can afford to sustain. Using innovative construction techniques, as well as supporting redevelopment projects that expand youth service provision, the YIF will achieve savings on facility running costs, so that resources can focus on activities that enrich young people’s lives.

It will support projects to level up youth provision, assessing and distributing grants so that local youth facilities and services can be the best they can be.  Please visit the Youth Investment Fund website.
