SUPPORT US

More than 1,400 local young people were directly impacted by Young Camden Foundation's grant giving programmes during the summer of 2020, which helped to address longstanding and complex issues, such as digital poverty, youth safety and mental health – all of which were exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Young Camden Foundation would greatly appreciate any support you or your organisation would be willing to contribute at this time. Without this support, our work would not be possible.

YOUNG PEOPLE'S FOUNDATION TRUST

We are proud members of the YPF Network that has been developed in response to the ongoing challenges facing the Children and Young People’s sector. Young People’s Foundations (YPF’s) bring together the public, private and voluntary sectors to effect positive change for young people. Together we share a common goal – to help create and champion a more impactful, co-ordinated and sustainable sector to ensure all children and young people have access to quality support and opportunities. Based in our local communities, each YPF’s services are based on the needs and assets of our area.

YPF CULTURAL COMPETENCY PLEDGE BACKGROUND

“Cultural Competence ensures that practice in the delivery of services to diverse communities meets their needs, recognises the differences in culture that exist and ensures that services are appropriately available and delivered successfully by skilled practitioners, thereby reducing inequalities that may affect particular groups of society.”[1]

Our Pledge

Young People’s Foundations work with and support diverse communities. Our member organisations are grassroots non-profits supporting young people in our communities. Many of these organisations are led by global majority groups. As YPFs we work with our members to elevate their work and voices.

We recognise the impact of poverty and racism on our communities. We aim to work actively alongside communities rather than ‘doing to them’ and take an intersectional approach. We also acknowledge the additional impact of discrimination experienced by women, disabled people and LGBT++ people of the global majority. As YPFs, we have a shared commitment to developing a culturally competent approach across our network. This involves working within our respective YPFs with our teams, trustees, member and partner organisations as well as a collective across our YPFs. This means ensuring that:

  • our diverse communities are represented in our organisations and structures
  • we design programmes that deliver and represent the needs of our diverse communities
  • we support, develop, advocate and work in partnership with global majority people and organisations throughout our networks.
