A youth organisation like no other

Youth engagement is a powerful tool.

At Young Lambeth Cooperative (YLC), our mission is to harness it, so we can use it to enhance the opportunities for young people in Lambeth and help them realise their full potential.

We engage young people and channel their insights in two key ways.

Firstly, we ensure that services for young people in our community are co-created and chosen by young people through our unique collaboration model.

Secondly, we provide opportunities for young people to influence decision-makers via Lambeth Youth Council.

We work particularly closely with the youth-focused voluntary sector to support its work through funding, training and skills provision – all informed by insights from our youth engagement work.

We’re proud to be a completely independent, cooperative youth organisation — the first of its kind in London.
