Jon Cruddas MP received some exciting news last week for the young people of Havering. Extra funding has been provided by the Mayor of London for the Young Londoner Fund. The Mayor’s Office just announced a further £13.2m of Young Londoners Fund grants across 72 projects.

The Mayor has created the Young Londoners Fund to help London’s children and young adults make the most of our amazing city. The Mayor's new Young Londoners Fund will help children and young people to fulfil their potential, particularly those at risk of getting caught up in crime.

It will support a range of education, sport, cultural and other activities for children and young people. The fund will see millions of pounds made available for projects in local communities and expansion of existing projects funded by City Hall that support young Londoners.

This announcement will bring the total investment under the Young Londoners Fund to over £20m so far, supporting more than 60,000 young people across the capital over the next three years. The huge popularity of the Young Londoner Fund shows the vital need to support young Londoners and the impact of recent cuts to youth services.

The following projects have been funded to deliver activities in the London Borough of Havering:

1.       Life Line Community Projects - £146,722

2.       Sycamore Trust UK - £146,560

3.       You and Me Counselling - £116,555

4.       Think Forward - £148,500

5.       Shpresa Programme - £135,309
