fbpx CYP Now: Glen Fendley - How I got here - London Youth

27 April 2021

Glen Fendley, our Director of Fundraising, was profiled in Children & Young People Now on his career so far and his work with London Youth.

Last November, I became London Youth’s first director of fundraising –I am proud to be part of an organisation that provided a safe space for me to make friends as a young black teenager.

I have joined at a critical time, and I do not underestimate the task ahead. As the regional voice for youth work, in a city where one in four citizens are aged under 18, raising income is vital to strengthen and sustain the existing network of community youth organisations.
