Impact Report 2022-23 


In 2022-2023, we worked with 571 member youth organisations who supported more than 650k+ young Londoners. 

For more than 135 years, we’ve worked alongside community youth organisations to provide a constant lifeline and a vital safe space outside the family and formal education, where young people can develop confidence, resilience and skills.  

Last year, we continued our work to achieve impact for youth workers, youth organisations, children and young people by delivering opportunities, driving impact and demanding change.
