Launching the Challenge and Change Fund

We are very excited to announce the launch of a new funding stream, Challenge and Change, which expands our work to directly invest in young people creating positive change.

History illuminates the capacity and courage of young people to drive change, but for far too long their ideas have been restricted or constrained. Power is often held by adult-led initiatives that end up speaking on their behalf or controlling or leading their ideas. This fund wants to change that and move power and resources to young people.

The Blagrave Trust has developed and launched the fund in partnership with the Centre for Knowledge Equity, and a group of young advisers: Daze Aghaji, Jovan Nepaul and Chloe Deakin.

The fund is open for applications from young people aged 18-25 until the 27th July 2020. All further information can be found here:
