Youth Opportunity Fund

The Youth Opportunity Fund (YOF) is a pot of funding available to young people, aged 11 to 19 years old, or up to 25 with a disability, who live, go to school or attend a youth provision in Wandsworth.

Young people can apply for up to £4,000 to run a project or activity that will benefit their peers.

The fund is totally youth-led. Young people think of the project ideas, write the bids, present their idea to the YOF Panel and run the projects. They are helped by a supporting organisation.

The bids are also accessed by a group of young people, called the YOF Panel, who decide which projects receive funding.

Help with applications

The YOF Panel run funding factories, where young people can come and ask for some advice on how to write a successful bid. 90% of those who attend a funding factory are successful with their bid.
