We rely on the generous support of many long-standing funders

Since 2010, our original core grant funding from the Government fell from £1million-a-year to almost nothing. This reinvigorated our need to work with diverse and dedicated funders.

These funders help provide the stability we need to continue to deliver high-impact engagement for young people and educators, but also those who fund bold innovative projects that help us continue to evolve in serving the needs of young people today.

This support allows us to heavily subsidise many programmes and keep some free of charge– with a goal to continue to grow our base to further extend our cost-free options to reach the young people and areas that need it the most. Read our past impact reports.

If you’re interested in becoming a funder or corporate partner of Young Citizens, please contact our Partnerships Manager, Kirsty Robertson.
