Launched in October 2018, the Young Audience Content Fund is a three-year program that will provide up to £57 million in development and production funding to UK original public service content. In a period of unprecedented disruption, the fund could provide an avenue of much needed support to the UK industry.

In discussion with the Head of Fund and panellists spanning the breadth of the awards, including PSB broadcasters to independent producers, we discuss what has been achieved so far, the experience of the process and the lessons learnt along the way.

This forum will provide an opportunity to dive into how the fund is evolving one year in amid the current pandemic, how this will shape future decisions and the aspirations going forward from the fund itself but also those that have to apply.
