Young people funding

The Young Roots programme is for projects that engage young people, aged 
11 to 25, with heritage in the UK.You can apply for a grant of more than 
£10,000 and up to £50,000.

Under this programme, we fund partnerships of heritage and youth 
organisations to help young people shape and deliver their own projects 
in safe environments.

The difference we want to make

Young people are bursting with creative ideas about how to explore and 
care for their heritage.

Whether restoring a vintage motorbike, designing a new nature trail or 
documenting changes to their community over time, through Young Roots 
projects young people make a real difference to the places where they 
live. In the process, their confidence grows and they learn valuable 
heritage and employability skills.

We support applicants to deliver high quality projects for all of the 
young people, staff and communities involved. Young Roots projects 
should achieve all of the outcomes for people and communities listed 
below, and one outcome for heritage.
