A partnership of Young People’s Foundations (YPFs) in north-west London has secured a transformational grant through the Propel initiative, a long-term funding collaboration that gives capital’s civil society and communities the flexibility, trust and capacity to make long-term, systemic change in London.
The YPF project will invest in support and training for frontline youth workers who everyday work is to provide life changing services for some of the capital’s most vulnerable young people.
Over the next three years Young Westminster Foundation, Young Camden Foundation, Young Harrow Foundation, Young Hammersmith and Fulham Foundation, Young K&C and Young Ealing Foundation will invest in vital skills, training and qualifications for youth and play service practitioners.
Youth workers in the six London boroughs will co-design the development of local professional support networks through which small grassroots organisations will be able to access vital training, develop their professional skills and gain new qualifications, and collaborate with their peers to better address the issues young people are facing. Ranging from mental health to youth violence and employment.

This power relies on a workforce of skilled, appreciated and supported staff and volunteers.Our vision is that through better supporting the people working everyday with young Londoners we can strengthen the fantastic grassroots youth organisations we have in Northwest London and better address the issues young people are facing.
