Children and Young People
The funder collaborations working with children and young people support a huge range of activities supporting their needs and development, from vital services to making their voices heard.
Below are details of two collaborations within this theme: One is UK-wide with a broad range of sub-themes, and one is specific to Northern Ireland
The Children and Young People’s Funder Collaboration are a group of funders who are deeply concerned about the impact COVID-19 is having on children and young people – particularly those already experiencing key risk factors. They want to collectively challenge themselves to ensure that they are working as effectively as possible to support children and young people through and beyond this crisis. This collaboration asks, "How can we, together, maximise the difference we make in the lives of children and young people?"
How can we, together, maximise the difference we make in the lives of children and young people in Northern Ireland? The impact of COVID-19 on children and young people is deeply concerning – particularly for those young people already experiencing key risk factors. We want to collectively challenge ourselves now to ensure we are working as effectively as possible to support children and young people through and beyond this crisis.

Investing in positive, healthy and expansive youth masculinities
Thu, 04/22/2021 - 17:21
We would love to hear from other funders who are investing in community based work around positive, expansive and healthy masculinities and funders who are resourcing work that disproportionately impacts boys and young men.
Global Fund for Children and the National Lottery Community Fund are in the middle of a Boys and Young Men Pilot Initiative to resource this work in England and would like to connect with other funders who are in this space. We are in the design stage of the next phase of this work and are ambitious about the opportunity to fund systemic change for boys and young men and their communities both in the UK and around the world. We would love to hear from others who are funding this work!

Thrive at Five is an exciting new place-based collective impact initiative focused on children from pregnancy to five. It brings together and aligns philanthropists, funders, local parents, communities and other key stakeholders to close the widening gap in school readiness amongst children in disadvantaged areas.
If you are interested in learning more about this initiative, which will be launching in our first Thrive at Five pathfinder community in February please get in touch.
