#iwill Fund Learning Hub

The #iwill Fund is an England wide joint investment that brings together £40 million in funding from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport and The National Lottery Community Fund, creating a central investment pot.

What is the Hub?

The #iwill Fund was set up to increase the quantity and quality of social action opportunities available for young people. Funding is provided by DCMS and the National Lottery Community Fund, then matched by a range of funders from across the social action sector.

The #iwill Fund is an England wide joint investment that brings together £40 million in funding from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport and The National Lottery Community Fund, creating a central investment pot. It launched in November 2016 to support the #iwill campaign’s goals in England, aiming to make social action part of life for as many 10 to 20 year-olds as possible by the year 2020.

The #iwill Fund Learning Hub was commissioned by the #iwill Fund Leadership Board to provide insight and intelligence to inform and shape future decisions. In addition, the work of the #iwill Fund Learning Hub is designed to provide an invaluable source of information and support to the #iwill Fund delivery partners.

However, the #iwill Fund Learning Hub will also reach beyond these; to delivery organisations providing youth social action opportunities and the institutions within which youth social action is embedded; other funders who may support youth social action; and the wider research community seeking to increase understanding of youth social action.
