Working in collaboration with our community of members and partners, we are committed to ensuring that the borough provides residents with access to the best possible youth services and opportunities.www.youngwestminster.com
Putting young people first
Westminster is a borough that has one of the largest wealth disparities in London, where 1 in 3 young people grow up in poverty. We support our community of over 100 youth organisations to provide life-changing support to young people that need it.
Our amazing members range from large youth clubs to local grassroots charities with many having specialist skills in a range of interest areas like arts or sports, and others provide educational and vocational activities or support services. Some delivery members also offer bespoke programmes for groups including young carers, homeless young people and young people with disabilities.Our impact on the community
We support local organisations through partnership opportunities, training and grant-giving, to help shape youth services in the borough and ensure that all young people growing up in Westminster can receive the level of support they need.
Our Brighter Futures Fund awards grants to organisations to deliver amazing projects that have a positive impact on young Londoners from all walks of life. More recently, we have been able to provide 2,000 devices to families and young people that did not have access to online learning during the pandemic as part of our Digital Futures campaign.What donations are used for
Any amount of individual giving will increase the level of funding we are able to distribute to youth charities in the borough. All donations will go directly into the community and help to sustain the invaluable programmes that organisations are delivering throughout Westminster.
We are incredibly grateful for any contributions you can make, and thank you for helping us to invest in brighter futures for young people.
