The Young Foundation is a member of the consortium appointed to manage Realising Ambition which is a £25 million Big Lottery Fund supported programme investing in projects which have been proven to help children and young people to fulfil their potential, and avoid pathways into crime. Over the next five years, the programme will replicate the best evidence-based practice, reaching over 140,000 8- to 14- year-olds across the UK.

The consortium is led by Catch 22, and partners include Substance and the Social Research Unit. Twenty-one organisations based across the UK have received grant funding and a support package to replicate a range of diverse interventions, supporting children and young people across school, home and community settings.

The Young Foundation’s role is particularly around supporting the replication process and assisting these twenty-one organisations to succeed. We work with the portfolio of delivery organisations to strengthen their organisational health and work towards the best outcomes for children and young people.
