UK Youth Fund Covid Resilience Application

To access the application form you need to register first so that we can create your
organisation passport. An organisation passport is a new way of storing your charity’s or
group’s information. This means that any time you apply to a fund in the future, you can
reuse the information you entered previously.
Each time you apply to a new fund you will see the data automatically populate the application form. By using this innovative new grant application format we will never have to ask you the same question twice and the time you will need to spend on applying for funding will be considerably reduced.
