Empowering young people to fulfil their potential

The KFC Youth Foundation creates opportunities for young people that inspire and empower them to take control of their lives and make positive change for a positive future.

The organisations that we work with across the UK provide safe spaces, help them to unlock talent, build life skills, provide mentoring or improve their chances to gain meaningful employment. We want to fund work that helps young people to create firm foundations, by addressing their needs through early intervention.

We know that grant making makes a huge difference to its recipients, but we are also challenging ourselves to become a service delivery partner rather than just a financial partner. It is our ambition to create amazing safe spaces and develop awesome youth workers that allow young people who most need it, to feel safe and secure.
