BIG LOTTERY | New Youth Programme Announced

Statement of intent for the dormant accounts youth programme

In January 2018, the government announced that £90 million from dormant bank and building society accounts will fund projects to support young people furthest from the labour market into employment. The programme will be designed jointly by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, the Department for Education, the Department for Work and Pensions and the Big Lottery Fund, with input from young people.

This statement signals the beginning of an engagement phase, which will inform the design of the programme.

HERE is the formal announcement.
