Appointed Corporate Partnerships New Business Manager

London Youth

London Youth is a charity on a mission to support the capital’s youth sector, and to improve the lives of young people. They do this with and through our members – a network of 600 youth organisations – and at their two outdoor residential centres.

Last year the charity worked with 28,100 young people through their sports development, employability, youth action and involvement, mental health, arts and outdoor education programmes. Their member network supported over 601,000 young Londoners. They delivered 133 training sessions to over 1,000 youth professionals. Their vision is that all young Londoners grow up healthy and able to express themselves, navigate a fulfilling career and make a positive contribution in their communities. Because good youth work works.

This is an important time to join London Youth’s fundraising team as they support young Londoners and youth organisations to navigate their way through the immediate and longer term effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and the cost-of-living crisis. As part of their response, they are also implementing a longer-term strategy to diversify across their funding streams.
