The Youth Endowment Fund exists to prevent children and young people becoming involved in violence. Their mission is to find out what works and build a movement to put this knowledge into practice. The fund was established in March 2019 by children’s charity Impetus, with a £200m endowment and ten-year mandate from the Home Office. 

The Youth Endowment Fund have a Toolkit containing up-to-date evidence on which interventions are effective in preventing young people’s involvement in violence.
