Funds for young people in England

V Match Fund - England only
The next closing date for v’s Match Fund is 5 February 2010. The
programme aims increase investment in youth volunteering from private
companies, charitable trusts/ foundations and individuals by doubling
the value of their investment. The private sector investment can be
cash or gifts in kind and investments range from £10,000 to £250,000.

The funding is for new opportunities for 16-25 year old volunteers,
which have clear community benefits and address one of the following:

* Health and well being
* Environment
* Supporting children and young people
* Community cohesion
* Poverty
* Human rights.

You need to demonstrate how you will engage young people who have
never volunteered before, including hard-to-reach and
under-represented groups.
