Young people have missed out on a lot due to COVID-19 and now face an uncertain future.
We need your help to ensure they receive the educational and employability support they so desperately need.

90p in every £1 we raise is used to support children and young people.

The Mayor’s Fund for London is an independent charity championing opportunities for young Londoners from low income backgrounds.

London is broken

Too many young Londoners from low income backgrounds are unable to make the best of the opportunities this great city has to offer.

Our latest research, One City, Two Worlds, tells us that despite academic success, those from London’s most deprived neighbourhoods do relatively worse in employment compared to their peers in the rest of England.

We need action

At the Mayor’s Fund, we are committed to changing the social mobility narrative in London and creating an environment where all young people, regardless of background, can thrive.

Over the past 10 years, we’ve been focusing our efforts on creating a space for action, reflection, and innovation. Our extensive network of cross-sector partnerships have allowed us to build a deep understanding of the day-to-day realities for young people from low income backgrounds. But we’re not done yet.

We recognise the complexity of addressing social mobility in London and have ambitious plans to support young Londoners in achieving happy and fulfilling lives.

Join us in making London a fairer place for all.

Our supporters

We couldn’t impact the lives of thousands of young Londoners without the support of our partners. A huge thank you to everyone who has supported us in our mission to help young Londoners grow.
