Join the fight to close the gap Lambeth has gone through many changes in recent years, some popular, some less popular. Official figures show our population is growing, employment figures appear to be rising and our school children continue to achieve improving exam results. Despite this growth, Lambeth remains one of the most deprived areas of the country – Lambeth is the 8th most deprived borough in London and the 22nd most deprived in England. Deprivation brings significant challenges in health, education and employment for everyone.

We have launched our new Targeted Youth and Play programme of services for children and young people. As an organisation we aim to empower young people to make decisions about their local community and our members shaped the commissioning process to decide on the outcomes they wanted from their youth and play services and chose from shortlisted applicants.

Back in 2012, local adults and young people joined forces with the Council to develop a new way of working to give communities more of a say on play and youth services in the borough. It was agreed that local people wanted more power and more involvment in deciding how money was spent and the way services could be run. It was from this principle that the Young Lambeth Co-op (YLC) was born. Anyone over 21 who shares the YLC's aims and values

Last October some of our lucky YLC members had the opportunity to visit Sky television studios. We teamed up with the Sky Academy Skills Studios created by Sky for young people to get hands on experience in the broadcast media industry. Our members worked with other young people to create a news report on the topic of 'youth vote', and even got a special viewing of a real Sky Sports news report being broadcast live at the same time.

Commissioning at the YLC is where money is spent to fund services for young people but as a membership organisation it is our members you have to choose what and how they want this money spent. This is why we get young people to tell us what they want during our membership events and interactive workshops.
