About The Young Foundation

The Young Foundation is a national charity with a long history of innovating to create social change. We are a ‘think and do’ tank, working with people and communities to shape a fairer future, together.

The UK’s public services are in acute crisis. Political trust is on the floor. The struggles people and communities face are many, and are deeply knitted together. Consequently, our mental health is often poor, and our resilience is weakened. We must be prepared to unravel and reweave for the common good.

That requires working together in new ways, empowering radical acts of co-creation across communities, sectors and boundaries. For The Young Foundation, this is a moment to embody the spirit of our founder, Michael Young. To embrace collective effort and work collaboratively to show that, with the Power of Participation, we can redesign the social contract between people, communities, state and business to shape a fairer, greener future.

About the role
