Youth Endowment Fund (YEF)

Youth Endowment Fund’s mission is to prevent children and young people from getting caught up in crime and violence by making sure that those at most risk get the best possible support, as early as possible.

We will support interventions and community partnerships working with children at risk of being drawn into crime and violence, and build up our knowledge of what works to prevent that.

Focusing on 10-14 year olds across England and Wales, the YEF is run by youth charity Impetus, in partnership with the Early Intervention Foundation (EIF) and Social Investment Business (SIB).
