Government announces £16.5 million youth covid-19 support fund

During the Chancellor of the Exchequer’s Spending Review speech, he announced a new youth fund, titled the Youth Covid-19 Fund; an “emergency funding package to protect the immediate future of grassroots and national youth organisations across the country”. It is hoped that this financial support will help mitigate the impact of lost income over winter due to Covid-19, and ensure services that provide vital support can remain open. Further details, including eligibility and how to apply, are yet to be announced.
