YWF’s Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion.

Young Westminster Foundation works with and supports diverse communities. Our member organisations are grassroots non-profits supporting young people in our communities. Many of these organisations are led by global majority groups. As YPFs we work with our members to elevate their work and voices. We recognise the impact of poverty and racism on our communities and aim to work actively alongside communities rather than ‘doing to them’ and take an intersectional approach. We also acknowledge the additional impact of discrimination experienced by women, disabled people and LGBT+ people of the global majority. As part of our commitment to equity, inclusion and cultural
competency across our network, we ensure diverse communities are represented and supported in our organisation and structures and encourage applications from all sections of the community.
