The YCG is the youth advisory and advocacy group for Challenge London, who advise us on investments we make as part of the Challenge.

Through Challenge London, AND will invest £900,000 in new initiatives that will enable new or different creative opportunities for children and young people across London, and you can have your say on which initiatives get selected.

The YCG will meet approximately once a month, and we’re asking for a commitment for the first year of Challenge London (May 2018 – April 2019).
