About the Foundation

Paul Hamlyn Foundation has invested in work with and for young people for over thirty years. We’ve recently made our 100th grant to organisations through the Youth Fund. This fund, together with the Growth Fund introduced in 2016, help us to support our strategic priority to invest in organisations that support young people to achieve positive change. Through these funding programmes, we are particularly keen to support young people’s

  • Engagement: encouraging young people to take part, to connect and to build relationships with those around them
  • Development: building young people’s strengths and capabilities to manage personal circumstances, increase skills and mobilise resources
  • Action: young people’s experience and active participation in community and society, increasing youth voice, mobilising influence and engagement in democracy
  • Leadership: identifying and investing in potential for young people to lead change, take responsibility and be empowered members of society.
