London Youth is committed to anti-racism and embraces equality, diversity and inclusion. We are committed to the ongoing development of an organisation that values and represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives and skills and welcome applications that reflect this. 


Our commitment to anti-racism In July 2020, we issued a statement committing to become an anti-racist organisation and to actively tackle racism here: https://londonyouth.org/about-us/our-commitment-to-anti-racism/

Since then, London Youth has worked with our staff and trustees to understand first the issues within our organisation, collaboratively developing a Theory of Change to define our areas of focus, approach and plan of action moving forward. We have a Race Equality Action Stakeholder Group which is chaired by a London Youth member and trustee. This group includes representatives from across the organisation and oversees the implementation of our Race Equality Action Plan. At the heart of youth work is the drive to level the playing field for all young Londoners to succeed, regardless of their backgrounds. Over two thirds of the young people we work with are from racialised communities and we know that without the opportunities which youth organisations provide, there would be limited experiences open to them.
