LONDON’S YOUNG PEOPLE
What we do
The Mayor’s Fund for London is a social mobility charity, supporting young Londoners from low-income backgrounds.
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, is our patron.
We want to see young Londoners with fulfilling careers thriving in their communities and developing into leaders across the city. Our key aim is to improve their access, awareness, abilities and aspirations so that they are better placed to take advantage of the outstanding opportunities that London has to offer.
In 2017, we supported 35,000 young Londoners across all 33 boroughs working in partnership with 420 schools, 123 community organisations, 200 employers and 80 charities, social enterprises, and local authorities.
We empower young Londoners from low-income backgrounds to acquire the skills and opportunities they need to secure employment, climb the career ladder and escape the threat of poverty. Our work focuses on three priorities: Wellbeing, Skills and Employment and Enterprise.
Help young Londoners grow
We could not exist without the vision, commitment and generosity of our benefactors. With their support, we have been able to improve and expand our work to help young Londoners grow.
A sincere thank you to each and every one of them.
