Testing For Impact - Open Grant Round


The Youth Endowment Fund exists to prevent children and young people becoming involved in violence. A Testing for impact grant has been launched to learn about the effectiveness of different approaches to preventing young people becoming involved in crime and violence.

  • Applications are open until 5pm Friday 8th December 2023.
  • Full application guidance can be found here and in the document attached. 

In this grant round, the fund are specifically looking to fund programmes that are well-established and ready for an efficacy evaluation. This means that you will need to demonstrate that your project is able to reach and support a large enough group of children to undertake this type of evaluation.

Testing for impact is an open round. Rather than focusing on one specific theme, applications are being accepted from projects working across eight focus areas, detailed on the application website. However, all organisations that apply for this grant round must be able to demonstrate that they are ready for a large-scale evaluation.


To learn more about the Testing for impact grant round, sign-up for one of the Youth Endowment Fund's upcoming application workshops.
