LBHF is a local authority in West London, providing services and information for residents, local businesses, and the local community. The authority serves a number of deprived communities, working across sectors, helping to provide synergies across all fields of actions concerning young people. We work with local businesses and third sector organisations (BBC Studios, The Arts + Entertainment Network, The Lyric Theatre, Imperial College, Royal College of Art and others) to source and train volunteers who work with young people at risk in a variety of ways. For example, project work, information sessions, one to one support and curriculum based activities. This work ties in with Government priorities to ensure that all young people have the opportunity and guidance to help them with their future decisions.
