Mayor's Young Londoners Fund

Mayor’s Young Londoners Fund

The Mayor has created the Young Londoners Fund to help London’s children and young adults make the most of our amazing city. 

The Mayor's new £45m Young Londoners Fund will help children and young people to fulfil their potential, particularly those at risk of getting caught up in crime. It will support a range of education, sport, cultural and other activities for children and young people. The 3-year fund will see £30m made available for projects in local communities. The remaining £15m will be invested to expand existing projects funded by City Hall that support young Londoners.
