National Grant Programmes

Our National Grant Programmes are a catalyst for positive change in the youth work sector in Scotland, inspiring growth and promoting innovation through investment, support, and collaboration.

At YouthLink Scotland, we are dedicated to supporting the youth work sector in Scotland. Our national grants programmes are designed to contribute to our three core organisational objectives:

Our grant programmes are designed with and for the youth work sector. We make over £1 million available every year through our main funds.

Over the last two years, we’ve made an additional £7 million available through Covid-19 grants related to education recovery, social isolation and loneliness and digital inclusion.

Our funds support youth work organisations to work with us, and the Scottish Government, to address important issues that affect young people in Scotland today.
