Harrow Children and Young People’s NEEDS Analysis

We want to help children and young people in Harrow to live Healthier, Happier and Safer lives, but we need to hear directly from children and young people around what support and services will make a difference to them.

This work is being supported and led by Peer Leaders from both the Harrow Youth Parliament and a range of locally based youth forums.

We want to collectively inspire and support our children and young people to have a voice around matters that most affect their lives.

By taking a joint up approach between Education, Council and the Voluntary and Community Sector we aim to understand all of issues that the 26,000 CYP in Harrow are facing including the hidden needs and risk factors.

The primary objective is to attract more external funding and to influence planning around our offer to ensure we meet the needs identified by OUR children & young people in Harrow.

Here is the update of how we are doing

Blue Markers = Peer leader trained to support the school

Purple Question Mark = Peer leader still wanted

Red Flag = School/College is signed up and either agreed an amount of surveys or in discussions

YOUNG HARROW FOUNDATION’S PURPOSE

Our aim at Young Harrow Foundation is to assist and support the ‘not for profit’ organisations within Harrow so that every child and young person in our borough can have a greater opportunity to fulfil their potential.

Young Harrow Foundation will champion children and young people in Harrow and the charities and organisations that support them.

We achieve this by:

  • advertising and marketing YHF effectively so that charitable organisations that meet the criteria for membership join our organisation.
  • encouraging the smaller charitable organisations within Harrow to work cooperatively and by assisting with the sharing of good practice.
  • offering training, advice, networking opportunities and a ‘venue bank’ to our partners and associates.
  • engaging with local businesses and forging partnerships where this is both appropriate and beneficial.
  • seeking and preparing bids for grants from large organisations that would not be receptive to advances from smaller organisations.
  • undertaking all reasonable steps to ensure the proper and effective use and distribution of our funds.
  • distributing grants fairly and transparently.
  • adopting robust procedures for monitoring the effectiveness of our funding to our member organisations.
  • liaising closely with and having regular meetings with our fellow organisations Young Barnet Foundation and Young Brent Foundation at CEO and Board levels.
  • employing highly motivated staff with relevant experience and qualifications and with a real desire to achieve positive outcomes. Enabling the betterment of our staff through personal career development plans.
  • putting safeguarding at the heart of what we do so that we can effectively promote the welfare of children and young people.
  • ensuring that we are responsive to the needs of children and young people and particularly those with disabilities.
  • liaising with Harrow Council and other organisations that provide services for and support young people in Harrow.
  • managing financial risks prudently.
  • striving for excellence in all that we do and conducting our dealings within our organisation and with our funders, supporters and member organisations in an open and polite manner.

Our Background:

We acknowledge the support and vision of John Lyon’s Charity without which Young Harrow Foundation could not have come into existence.

Background : Young Harrow Foundation (YHF) was set up in 2015 and is funded for three years by John Lyon’s Charity and City Bridge Trust. It is designed to be a new model of local support for ‘not for profit’ organisations working with children and young people in Harrow within a climate of decreasing statutory provision and support for young people. YHF is seeking new ways to strengthen the relationships between funders and local organisations so that more effective ways of supporting and delivering activities can be established to meet the needs of children and young people.

YHF is managed by a Board of Trustees with a range of skills and experience. Our CEO, Dan Burke, is responsible for its day to day operation. Young Harrow Foundation is a registered charity and will be a ‘member-led’ organisation.

Our aim at Young Harrow Foundation is to assist and support the ‘not for profit’ organisations within Harrow so that every child and young person in our borough can have a greater opportunity to fulfil their potential.

  • We are responsive to the needs of children and young people and put safeguarding at the heart of everything we do.
  • We actively promote the sharing good practice; we offer training, advice, networking opportunities and a ‘venue bank’ for our member organisations and other partners.
  • We seek to develop effective partnerships with statutory, public, private organisations, including businesses, and ‘not for profit’ organisations which support and provide services for children and young people in Harrow.
  • We build relationships with funders, co-ordinate funding bids and advise our member organisations on how to bid more successfully for external funding.
  • We run a small grants programme for member organisations to apply for.

Young Harrow Foundation will champion children and young people in Harrow and the charities and organisations that support them.
