Application deadline: none – applications may be made at any time.

The Variety Club’s Youth Club Grants programme is designed to provided items of equipment for UK youth clubs that are providing opportunities for children and young people aged 8 to 18 to improve their social skills, team spirit and self-esteem.

Applications for the improvement of youth club premises and facilities will also occasionally be considered.

Please note that youth organisations must be affiliated to either UK Youth or the National Association of Boys and Girls Clubs to be eligible to apply.

Applications should:

o Benefit young people from 8 to 18 years old who are resident within the UK.
o Have sustainability beyond one year, and
o Demonstrate involvement from young people in raising funds.

Grants awards tend to be for between £250 and £600, although grants can be provided for smaller or larger amounts.

There is a match funding expectation as youth clubs will be required to show that they have raised some funding towards their project.

Funding is not available for:

o Revenue costs, such as administrative/salaries, hire costs or travel.
o Applications which mainly benefit youth workers such as office equipment.
o Organisations that are not affiliated to a National Youth Organisation, or
