A Fairer Future

Children and young people’s rights


PLEASE NOTE: We are making some key changes to our strategy in one of our aims, A Fairer Future. Because of this we will temporarily close to new applications in funding priorities for A Fairer Future until Autumn 2022, when we will share our revised strategy.

We believe all children and young people should have their rights respected, no matter how challenging their circumstances.

We recognise some young people do not always get the support or services they need and fund those who work with young people to create fairer systems.

What we want to achieve

Impact goal

Injustice and structural inequality is challenged and changed

Long-term outcomes
  • More children and young people access the education, services, and support to which they are entitled
  • Legislation, policy, and practice better reflect the needs of those most likely to have their rights denied
  • Young people with direct experience of being let down by the system are supported to shape better approaches

If you are interested in applying for funding on under this priority, please see our guidance for support.
