The Mayor of London created the Young Londoners Fund (YLF) to help give young people the support they need to build a better future and avoid getting caught up in crime. The 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.
A new YLF Local Network for Bexley and Bromley offers a unique opportunity to develop a model, informed by best practice whilst being bespoke and relevant to both young people and stakeholders in our localities. For instance, both our Forums are inclusive of key VCSE agencies which lead on service delivery to young people and are connected to statutory agencies (Council and CCG) through their commissioning. The voice and views of young people will therefore be embedded in the Forum and its plans.
As part of the Young Londoners Fund, the Bromley and Bexley Local CYP network hosted an interactive online event on 1 December 2020 to focus on the engagement and participation of young people in organisations and activities. The event was a great success with over 60 people participating throughout the morning in our various workshops. We are pleased to be able to share with you all the presentations and feed back that came out from those sessions.
