Challenge and Change is a fund dedicated to supporting the limitless energy of young people affected by injustices who are working tirelessly across England to create positive change. We see you. We know that you are creators of change and active citizens for the public good. We also recognise that you need investment and support to take forward your ambitions for a positive future.
If you’re 18-25 years old, working at the hard edge of injustice and have radical ideas, dreams, visions, and imaginations for a just and fair world for all, we want to invest in you and your work and offer a package of mentoring and network support to help take your work to the next level.
Applications open now until 11.59pm on 27th July 2020
History illuminates the capacity and courage of young people to drive change, but for far too long their ideas have been restricted or constrained. Power is often held by adult-led initiatives that end up speaking on their behalf or controlling or leading their ideas. This fund wants to change that and move power and resources to young people.
This moment in time, which will go down in history, once again shows young people bringing social, economic, and climate injustices to the consciousness of adults who have been too slow to act.
Amazing young minds and hearts have made the vision of this fund possible, and the future of this fund will also be guided by the knowledge, wisdom, and insights of young people.
The Challenge and Change fund is guided by the knowledge, wisdom, and insights of young people and we intend this fund of £80,000 to be the first round of funding. Watch this space for future funding!
This fund was co-created by a group of partners: Young Advisers – Daze Aghaji, Chloe Deakin, Jovan Nepaul – the Blagrave Trust and the Centre for Knowledge Equity.
