We want all young people in Westminster to reach their full potential and be equipped for the future.
We are committed to this goal, but like other local authorities, can only achieve it at a time of significant budget reductions by making changes to some of our services, including non-statutory youth services.
Caxton Youth Organisation, a youth club that runs short breaks for young people with disabilities in Westminster, will continue to be funded by the council.
Young Westminster Foundation
The Young Westminster Foundation is a new charitable foundation that is being formed by the council, representatives from the voluntary youth sector, charities, young people, and others that want to support children and young people aged 0-25.
The Foundation will not deliver services directly, but will take advantage of Westminster’s unique position in the heart of London, and the biggest economy in the UK, to raise funds for youth services in a new way.
Work towards establishing the Young Westminster Foundation is well underway, and similar Foundations are already set up, and proving successful, in other boroughs.
