One of the Youth Ambition Programme’s main goals is to build capacity in voluntary and community organisations in Oxford. This is because they recognise and value the contribution that is made to children and young people in the city.

One of the ways Youth Ambition do this is through grant aid to projects or services that benefit young people across Oxford. We have limited funds available but we offer two main funding streams.

For 2020/2021 financial year we are offering £130,000 through our holiday activities fund where organisations can apply for up to £20,000 to deliver open access holiday activities in our regeneration areas. We are also offering £50,000 available through our Youth Ambition fund, where organisations can apply for up to £7,000 to deliver work on issues identified within our needs analysis.

Both grants are open now and close on Sunday 26th January 2020. All the information you require to apply can be found on
