Support for children and young people 

Our Young Londoners Project will empower young people aged 5 to 21 years old to seek education, training and support on matters relating to their immigration, housing and employment status. This also includes support for unaccompanied refugee and asylum seeking minors.

We will be working with youth centres, schools, social services and other Young Londoner projects across Bexley, Bromley, Croydon, Greenwich, Lambeth, Lewisham, Merton, Southwark and Wandsworth to locate young people in need of our services.

This project has been made possible by a grant from the The Mayor’s £45m Young Londoners Fund. It has been created to fund local projects that provide young people with the support they need to build a better future. It supports a range of education, sport, cultural and other activities for children and young people.
