UKG Youth Investment Fund (YIF) Pilot (19 June) 


  • The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) is making funding available for the construction of up to four pilot youth facilities in advance of the launch of Phase 2 of the Youth Investment Fund (YIF)
  • Date(s) - Charities, local authorities, schools, uniformed organisations, sports clubs, and other not-for-profit organisations have until 11:59pm on 19 June 2022 to submit their applications


The funding will support four organisations delivering youth work in ‘left behind’ areas of England to pilot a youth facility and the delivery process associated with their construction. It will provide the DCMS with feedback and learning from the build process that can inform the design, facility requirements and construction methods of future YIF-funded facilities. The Phase 2 pilot fund will test facilities designed to meet the needs of smaller youth organisations. Each of the 4 sites should be situated in one of YIF’s eligible investment locations (all Halton wards are included); able to demonstrate demand for youth services; available immediately to accommodate a building project (subject to planning permission); and applicants must own the site or have legal rights to develop on the site.

Please Note:

The deadline for applications to the above Fund is now 11:59pm on Sunday 3 July 2022. This has been extended from the original deadline of 11:59pm on Sunday 19 June 2022.
