We’re determined to achieve the greatest impact possible for young people, and our members, through our work. Based on our recent ‘This is Harrow’ report, we’ve set ourselves five ambitious challenges to meet by 2019.

We will increase funding and partnership working across five key areas:
  • Mental
    Health
  • Inequalities
  • Physical
    Health
  • Youth
    Violence
  • Employment
