As part of the Civil Society Strategy, the Government committed to working with the National Lottery Community Fund to allocate £90 million from dormant bank accounts to a new, independent organisation to support young people furthest away from the labour market. Last week, the Youth Futures Foundation (YFF) launched and announced its Founding Chair, Joe Montgomery.

Over the coming months, YFF will set out its strategy for using this funding to support the most disadvantaged young people into employment. Funding is supporting small, grassroot youth organisations working with young people Not in Employment, Education or Training (NEET) or at risk of becoming NEET, to build their organisational capacity and strengthen local partnerships.
