ABOUT US

The Mayor’s Fund for London is a pan-London, non-political, independent charity, championing opportunities for young Londoners from low-income backgrounds. We believe that all young people, regardless of their starting point in life, should be able to thrive in their community, forge fulfilling careers and are able to take advantage of the outstanding opportunities that London has to offer. The Mayor of London is our patron.

Our work in the fields of food, wellbeing, numeracy and employment raises awareness of the barriers facing young Londoners, promotes activities which increase their opportunities and brings together the partnerships to make a measurable impact on young Londoners’ lives. By 2025 we aspire to have improved the prospects of a minimum of 120,000 young Londoners. In 2021, we supported around 40,000 young Londoners aged 4-24 across all 33 boroughs, working in partnership with schools, charities, community organisations, local authorities and employers.
