Growing Lives - forging lasting links with families and young people

Our Growing Lives programme is now closed. However, our open grants programme can support churches and Christian charities with funding to enable children’s and youth work, and your project may be eligible for a Hope Beyond grant if it is responding to community need in light of the Covid-19 pandemic. Details of our other grants programmes are available on our what we fund and how to apply pages.

We’re delighted that our Growing Lives programme will have awarded more than £2 million to equip and empower over 200 churches and Christian charities to engage more young people more regularly since its launch in May 2019.

You can watch a video showing some of the projects we have supported here and please do read our Growing Lives research in the downloads section on the right of this page, which features youth work case studies from churches from a range of settings sharing their learnings and experiences – both good and bad! Examples of the wide-ranging impact of our Growing Lives programme also feature in the related articles section below, or just search for Growing Lives using the magnifying glass tool in the navigation bar above.
