Based in Hammersmith & Fulham, we work closely with our members to shape opportunities and create the best services for children and young people, who live, learn, play or work in our borough.

Funded by John Lyons Charity(JLC), we were developed in response to the ongoing challenges facing the Children and Young People’s sector.

YHFF brings together the public, private and voluntary sectors to effect positive change for young people. Our membership registration is open for everyone at the local level that works with children and young people aged 0-25. This includes youth clubs, charities, schools, businesses, voluntary groups and the public sector.

We are experienced, knowledgable and passionate about the Children and Young People's community.
