The Pears Youth Fund supports projects that actively involve young people in their design and delivery, with a strong focus on voice, engagement and influence.

Addressing the barriers that make it more difficult for young people to have a voice and be heard, this year’s Fund opened applications on Tuesday 2 July 2019.
The Fund aims to support projects to explore different methods of engagement and collaboration and to understand more about the barriers and solutions. The Fund will offer 2 grant levels:
•           Grants of up to £7,500 for applicants applying as a single organisation
•           Grants of up to £10,000 for projects who can demonstrate that they are working in partnership.

To find out more about the programme and see if you are eligible to apply, please see the Leeds Community Foundation website:

If you interested in applying and would like to learn more about the Pears Youth Fund then please join our briefing session.

This will include a presentation explaining the grant programme, the application process, an overview of previously funded projects, a Q&A session, and networking opportunities. Please reserve tickets using the link below.

Previously funded group Springfield Centre “So many grants and programmes are designed to respond to negative behaviours and tackle them.  It has been really satisfying for the staff to develop a project with the young people that has had a more positive focus to it.”
