LONDON’S YOUNG PEOPLE
What we do
We are an independent charity, championing social mobility for young Londoners from low-income backgrounds.
Our work raises awareness of the barriers facing young Londoners, promotes the activities which best increases their opportunities and brings together the partnerships to make a measurable impact on young Londoners’ lives. We believe that all young people, regardless of their starting point in life, should be able to thrive in their community, forge fulfilling careers and are able to take advantage of the outstanding opportunities that London has to offer.
In 2018, we supported over 35,000 young Londoners aged 4-24 across all 33 boroughs working in partnership with 427 schools, 110 community organisations and 94 employers, charities, social enterprises, and local authorities.
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 and 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.
