Youth funding

Erasmus+ is the European Union programme for education, training, youth and sport. Each year, UK youth organisations and young people can access Erasmus+ funding to support life-changing international opportunities.

For organisations, it helps to develop capacity, initiate international partnerships, and offer new opportunities to young people. As an individual, you can add to your understanding of other cultures, while gaining knowledge, skills and experience of value to your career. Erasmus+ is especially beneficial for disadvantaged and vulnerable young people, who might otherwise miss out on opportunities for international experience. Through Erasmus+:

  • Youth organisations can collaborate with international partners: to develop their capacity and offer new opportunities to young people
  • Young people can experience life in another European country: to share interests and concerns with their counterparts through a youth exchange
  • Youth workers and staff can job shadow or train abroad: to develop their professional practice, build relationships with international peers and gain new ideas
  • Young people can interact and debate with decision-makers: in order to make a difference on issues that affect them
