by | Mar 28, 2018 |

Of interest to Organisations dealing with Young People, Arts, Learning, Transition to Adulthood, Skills

Paul Hamlyn Foundation’s mission is to help people overcome disadvantage and lack of opportunity, so that they can realise their potential and enjoy fulfilling and creative lives.


The eligibility criteria for each of their different funding opportunities varies.

What For?

They have a particular interest in supporting young people and a strong belief in the importance of the arts. Two of their various funding programmes are Young People and the Arts:

Education & learning through the arts

They want to improve people’s education and learning through the arts

The arts play an important role in enriching young people’s learning and educational experiences. Learning through the arts can engage and inspire young people, support key educational outcomes and develop skills that prepare young people for life beyond school. For many young people, particularly those experiencing the most disadvantage, the only opportunity to gain access to arts education is at school.

Investing in young people

They want to support the development and growth of organisations investing in young people and positive change

Much of their work aims to benefit young people but it is those who work directly with them who often make a difference to their lives, especially if they are vulnerable or face complex transitions to adulthood. They want to help organisations at different stages of development to improve, consolidate and spread those good practices which are endeavouring to make young lives better.

How Much?

Previous grants in the above categories range from £30,000 to £300,000.


Generally most of their different funding opportunities do not have a deadline, but are on a rolling basis.
