At the People’s Question Time (PQT) meeting on 3 February 2022, you said that 86,000 young people had been helped by the Young Londoners Fund (YLF). Could you tell me: a) how much money from the YLF has been spent in each borough since the fund’s creation, and b) how many young people were helped in each borough?

Since my Young Londoners Fund (YLF) was created in 2018, I have invested £32,076,255 to date across all London boroughs through two rounds of funding to help support young people. You can see a breakdown of each borough’s spending in the accompanying document and a list of YLF projects by borough.

You can see a list of how many young people have been helped in each borough in the accompanying document. Please note that some young participants do not disclose which borough they live in. My young Londoners fund is now forecast to exceed its target of supporting 100,000 by December 2022.
