Posted on: 17/01/2022 in: News
Young Westminster Foundation is pleased to announce that 24 grants totalling £313,000 have been awarded to youth organisations across Westminster as part of the third round of the Westminster Brighter Futures Fund. This investment will provide invaluable support for Westminster’s young people and their families over the coming 12 months.

This year, the fund received a total of 39 applications totalling £712,000. The awarded projects were decided by a panel of YWF staff, trustees, funders, partners and young people.

Phil Barron, CEO of Young Westminster Foundation, said: “The sheer volume of applications that the Brighter Futures Fund received this year is testament to the ongoing need for financial investment in services for local children and young people. We hope this year’s funding continues to strengthen the fantastic work of youth organisations in Westminster, which in turn helps to enrich the lives of all who grow up in the borough.”
