Young Brent Foundation
Set up by John Lyon’s Charity to address local needs YBF is an umbrella membership organisation, developed for the benefit of all youth providers across the borough of Brent. Supporting voluntary sector organisations, working with children and young people in the Borough at a time Brent faces severe challenges and funding cuts. And a time, where the need for young people’s services in Brent has never been greater. A key founding aims of the community led, Young People’s Foundation is to create an innovative flagship and partnership model that unites a fragmented and diverse voluntary youth sector, and creates a strong united voice, equipping members with the training, resources and financial support they need to increase overall capacity and develop a more sustainable future to benefit young people.
Founded in 1887 because the individual youth organisations of the day knew that they were stronger and could achieve more for young people by working together. Since then, much has changed for young Londoners, but the need to work together is more pressing than ever. Working with youth organisations to offer young people a wide range of high-quality opportunities for learning and fun and to build strong trusted relationships with adults and their peers. Providing a united voice and support for community youth organisations and youth workers across the capital.
