Membership FAQs

Below you can find answers to common questions about London Youth membership. If you have a question that is not covered here, please contact the Membership Team on membership@londonyouth.org.

Who is eligible to join London Youth?

We welcome a variety of organisations that work with and support young people in London. Our members represent the diversity of our city: theatres, sports clubs, arts organisations, urban farms, youth centres and more. Some members provide services to specific groups, such as young carers or refugees, and others work with young people on a wider scale. You must directly deliver your work to children and/or young people in London, outside of statutory education settings. We do not offer membership to profit-making companies. Depending on the type of organisation you are, you may not be able to access the full range of our offer. Please contact us if you have questions.

How can I join?

Becoming a member of London Youth is quick and easy. You can find our application form on our About Membership page. Once submitted, one of our team will be in touch within five working days to confirm your eligibility and to share details about how to pay your membership fee.

If you have been a member of London Youth in the past and are looking to re-join, please let us know by emailing us.

How much is membership?

Membership costs between £100 – £200 per organisation for the current membership year (1 April 2022 – 31 March 2023). The structure is as follows:

  • Turnover under £100k: £100 annual fee
  • Turnover £100k-£1m: £150 annual fee
  • Turnover over £1m: £200 annual fee

After submitting your application form, you will receive instructions on how to make your payment. You can pay your fee online by credit or debit card, or contact us to request BACS transfer. We cannot accept payments in instalments.

If you join more than half way through the year (on October 1 or afterwards) your fee will be reduced by 50%, so you will pay either £50, £75 or £100.
