The Youth Action Fund

The Distillers’ Charity’s original purpose and aims, as with those of many Livery companies, lie in developing talent and knowledge in young people focused on education and vocational training in the distilling industry.

The Youth Action Fund is supported by the proceeds of the Distillers One of One Auction Series to transform the life chances of young people in Scotland aged between 16 and 25. The Fund’s portfolio of charities and impact monitoring is managed by Inspiring Scotland.
