YLF Impact Partnerships Fund

The Impact Partnerships Fund is part of the Mayor's Sport Unites programme and Young Londoners Fund. It will provide funding for two year projects that use sport to support young people aged 10-25 who are at risk of getting involved in crime. The funded projects will create employment and training opportunities for participants. 

Grants of £100,000 - £200,000 are available and the delivery of projects should take place over two years. The fund will 'scale up' up to six existing initiatives with a proven track record in using sport to support those at risk of crime. 

Expressions of Interest open on 1 July 2019 and close on 14 August 2019. 

If successful, you will be invited to submit a full application by 19 August 2019. 


What type of projects are you looking for?

We are looking for initiatives that:

  • Provide regular activities for ‘at-risk’ Young Londoners. We classify an ‘at-risk’ young person as someone who has previously committed a crime or is likely to commit a crime. We would expect to see how ‘at-risk’ young people have been referred or recruited to your project
  • Provide employment and training opportunities for participants
  • Use sport (and can include additional means such as art, wellbeing activities etc.) to engage young people at risk of getting involved in crime
  • Sport means various kinds of physical activities that bring people entertainment, enjoyment and relaxation, from traditional sports to alternative activities such as dance, yoga and running.


Who can apply?

  • A constituted non-profit organisation
  • Organisations with a minimum turnover of £200,000

Organisations that don't meet these requirements may still be able to apply. However, they should apply in partnership with an organisation that does.
