What you get with membership

We’re a long-standing member of London Youth and are proud to have collaborated with them on so many projects. We’re looking forward to making plans for the future together!

Your membership gives you everything your organisation needs, all in one place – either free or at a heavily discounted price. This includes:

  • Access to Communities of Practice and specialist networks on topics like youth violence, employability, mental health and inclusion where you can get peer support from our network of members.
  • Get recognised and improve your organisation’s policies, procedures and practice through our Quality Mark, a quality assurance framework recognised by London funders.
  • Participate in our high quality sports, youth action, and employability programmes and access grant funding for your youth organisation.
  • Get your young people outdoors at our two residential outdoor education centres just outside London and take advantage of significant member discounts.

  • The opportunity to have a say on decisions that affect you through our policy, media and research voice, making the case for good youth work and a strong and sustainable youth sector in London.
