The funding is for projects that work with young people aged 10 to 24 in England and young people aged 10 to 18 in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland who are experiencing discrimination or disadvantages which create short- or longer-term barriers to employment, especially those whose journeys towards employment have been further disrupted by the coronavirus/COVID-19 crisis.

The grants can be used to cover project and organisational costs, including planning and development for the future.
Applications will be accepted from 10 July to 31 July 2020 (11:30am).
