Creating a Better City For All

The aim of the Lord Mayors Appeal is to bring together city businesses, neighbouring communities, charities and employees to find solutions to the city’s most pressing societal issues. The appeal is aimed to work on four key pillars to build a city that is;

  • Inclusive: Breaking down barriers to Inclusion
  • Healthy: Campaigning to end the Mental Health stigma
  • Skilled: A future ready workforce
  • Fair: Celebrating giving and making a greater difference

We're thrilled to launch our new multi-year strategy to help one million people thrive.

The Lord Mayor's Appeal

OnSide Partners with the Lord Mayor's Appeal

OnSide Youth Zones is delighted to partner with the Lord Mayor’s Appeal. Here, our Chief Executive Kathryn Morley explains how huge a boost this is for the charity in London and how we will benefit.

“It was absolutely fantastic to be part of the Lord Mayor’s Show and seeing our float pass Mansion House while being broadcast live on the BBC was an incredibly proud moment for everybody associated with the charity. Onside’s partnership with the Lord Mayor’s Appeal is going to be a significant boost for our work in London, helping to take us to the next level as we develop and open our first Youth Zones in the capital.”

Enhancing the lives of London's young people

Funding generated from the partnership with the Lord Mayor’s Appeal will enable OnSide Youth Zones to provide a range of skills such as high-quality mentoring, personal development and employability skills to ensure that young Londoners are equipped and ready for the future as well as partner with voluntary organisations to provide a range of inspirational and developmental activities. Also, as OnSide caters for young people with disabilities, it will help with the provision of specialist equipment across its London Youth Zones.

OnSide Youth Zones’ London champion Charles Mindenhall said: “We are absolutely delighted to become a partner of the Lord Mayor’s Appeal. This special collaboration will help OnSide Youth Zones and the City create brighter futures for young people across the capital. This will be achieved by providing safe and inspiring places to spend their leisure time, with many wonderful activities and opportunities on offer.”
