Inspiring Scotland 14:19 Fund
The 14:19 Fund, aims to support young Scots aged 14:19 who are
struggling to make a successful transition from school into
employment, education or training.
This ten year fund was launched in 2008 and after an extensive
period of due diligence was undertaken, a portfolio of 24 (now 20)
organisations (Ventures) were selected to form the 14:19 Fund
portfolio. Through 7-10 year investment the 14:19 Fund aims
to help 56,000 young people with an aspiration that 35,000 of those
young people will be engaged in education employment or training.
Many thousands more will take significant steps on the journey to a
more positive future.
Since 2009, the fund has successfully invested £35.6m in the
Ventures and this investment has leveraged a further £37.8 m in
matched funding. As at 31 March 2015 35,534 young people have been
supported, achieving 41,318 progression milestones and 16,981
supported in to education, employment or training as result.
