Young Camden FoundatioN

Established in 2017, Young Camden Foundation (YCF) is a registered charity set up to address the growing uncertainty of long-term investment in the children and young people sector in Camden and the need to build more cross-sector partnerships. YCF aims to provide a new model of local support for its members, which includes building capacity and better equipping the community with resources and funding, connecting and working with organisations to develop new and entrepreneurial approaches to supporting young people and championing critical issues facing the local community.

Our Work

Since its inception, Young Camden Foundation has awarded more than £400,000 in small grants to members, which include Camden-based charities that offer services and support to children and young people. And, over 2,000 children and young people in Camden have directly benefited from Young Camden Foundation's small grant giving programmes.
