Business Partnerships

LYP has a great history of working with local businesses to strengthen our work and support local young people. We are particularly thankful to Exxonmobil and Wates who have supported us with funding LYP and Allsaints Coffee Shop.

There are many ways in which your business can get involved with
LYP, including:

– Making a donation to a project we run.

– Holding a fund-raising event for us

– Providing volunteers to our projects.

– Running ‘Team’ days with LYP, decorating or maintaining our premises.

– Helping create or find apprenticeship opportunities for local young people.

Please contact us if you would like to find out more.

Volunteer your time

We are always looking for volunteers who can help us with the work we do with local young people.

Some of our current opportunities:

BFree Youth Café – We are looking for volunteers to help staff BFree Youth Cafe one afternoon each week from 3:15pm-6:15pm. Suitable volunteers will need to be able to relate to young people and build positive relationships with them. Volunteers will be subject to DBS checks and references, and will be given Safeguarding Training annually.

Total Football – Total Football is a friday night football league for young people aged 11-16. We need volunteers to help us referee the games (no experience or qualification necessary!) and to set up equipment. Total Football won the High Sheriff of Surrey Youth Project of the Year in 2014, and a National Crimebeat Commendation in 2015.

Please contact us for a role description and to talk more about this if you are interested in volunteering.
