What we do
The Mayor’s Fund for London is a social mobility charity. We empower young Londoners from disadvantaged backgrounds to acquire the skills and opportunities they need to secure employment, climb the career ladder and escape the threat of poverty. Our charitable activities focus on wellbeing, skills, employment and enterprise. In 2016, we supported 31,574 young Londoners across all 33 boroughs working in partnership with 325 schools, 220 employers and 78 charities, social enterprises, and local authorities. The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, is our patron.
Partnership and collaboration are key principles of the charity and we are committed to developing long term, meaningful relationships. We look at shared goals and values, and work together to help develop a partnership plan that sees all parties engaged and working towards the same vision.
We are proud to have established innovative and strategic corporate partnerships and programmes to improve the life chances of young Londoners with a number of organisations across a range of different industries and sectors.
