Projects Supported


Find answers to some frequently asked questions below.

Do I need to be a Peabody resident to be a Young Leader?

No – you just need to be aged 11 – 25 and live in London.

How do I apply?

You can fill in the form online here or contact us below and we’ll get back to you. Put in as much as information as possible in your form on why you want to do this and what gave you your idea so we can really understand your aims. And if you’re not sure, let us know and we can help you with the application form!

How much is the funding?

We fund each project for £500 – but if you have a great idea that would be even better with more funding, get in touch and we can look at whether we can offer more support.

Can youth groups or schools get involved?

Yes! We are always happy to have young people apply as a group to deliver a Young Leader project. We also work in partnership with youth groups and schools to run multiple projects over a year.

We also run the Young Ambassadors programme with schools and youth groups – a series of six masterclasses that trains young people in representing the views of others and making change happen. Use the contact form below to find out more.

Can I apply on behalf of my son or daughter?

We can support young people from the age 11 to be a Young Leader, so if you think your child would like to get involved, get in touch for a chat about how it works. We provide 1-to-1 support for young people so that they can write their application, lead their project themselves and build their confidence.

How long does it take to become a Young Leader?

This is kind of up to you and what your idea is. We have had young people put an event together in a month and other people need six months to make their project work – it depends on what works for you.

What's the difference between a Young Leader and a Young Ambassador?

A Young Leader runs a social action event or project in their area for their community. A Young Ambassador is trained through masterclasses to represent the views of other young people and take part in forums to raise their voices and make change happen for young people. We’d love to hear from you if you’d like to get involved!

I've always wanted to be a leader within my community to put my opinion across and also the opinions of the other young people.

Becoming a Peabody Young Ambassador allows me to make a difference in the community and make it a better place.
