Future Changemakers Fund
Shifting power to young people (closed)
In February 2018 three young men were tragically stabbed in Camden, two of them fatally. Young people in Camden face rising violence, poverty and cuts to the youth services that protect them. Camden Giving’s response to this is the ‘Future Changmakers’ programme.
The Future Changemakers are ten 16-25 year old living in Camden who made decisions of which youth services we fund, because we believe in putting power into the hands of those who understand the challenges best.

The Future Changemakers have awarded grants to 9 organisations to improve the safety of Camden’s young people aged 16-25 by:
Providing opportunities for young people to have positive and relatable role models or mentors.
Raising awareness of mental health and/or drugs, as well as support that is available.
We’ve been supported by 5 businesses to create our Future Changemakers Grant. Thank you to Argent, Camden Town Unlimited, Camden Watch Co, Euston Town BID, The National Community Lottery Fund and The Span Trust for funding this ground-braking work.
We’re delighted to be delivering these grants with our partners Somali Youth Development Resource Centre.
