Young Londoners Fund
Last week Mayor of London Sadiq Khan called on the Government to take real action to tackle the causes of knife crime and other violent crimes, which are rising across the UK.
He also released the first details of how organisations will be able to benefit from the new £45m fund he has set up to help young people in London at risk of being caught up in crime.
The Mayor’s Young Londoners Fund will support a wide range of activities to help those aged between 10 and 25, particularly marginalised, low income and Black And Minority Ethnic (BAME) young Londoners who might otherwise be at risk of getting caught up in crime.
These activities can include community sport initiatives, gang exit programmes and projects to train teachers and youth workers in mental health first aid
The first £5m of allocations will be used to scale up existing projects and local communities, charities and schools are to be invited to bid for a share of a further £10m later this spring.
It will provide aspirational and positive activities to help young people reach their true potential.
