Building Young Brixton – working together to inspire and empower!

What is BYB?

Baytree is a proud member of Building Young Brixton – a partnership of 9 Lambeth-based youth organisations, working together to inspire and empower young people in Brixton to build the lives that they want. Since being founded in 2017, our aim has always been to grow together with shared expertise and resources, which means increased opportunities for the young people we serve!

We share a common goal in empowering young people and ensure that our services are youth-lead and youth-informed. We ensure this through our Youth Steering Group (YSG), youth council meetings and creating an environment where individuals feel that they can voice their opinions.


Why supporting youth matters

The latest deprivation data, from 2017, ranks Lambeth as the 9th most deprived borough in London and the 44th in the whole of England (out of 326). Around a third of a million people live in the borough, which includes areas such as Brixton, Stockwell, Tulse Hill and Coldharbour.

BYB recently released an 18-month report, showcasing collaborative working and BYB in action.

From bake offs to …… challenges, BYB have come together to enrich….


BYB Impact

BYB’s successes are enormous and we feel grateful to be a part of this fantastic partnership. Through BYB, 736 young people felt their Physical Health, Mental Health and Wellbeing had improved while 647 had better relationships with friends and family.


COVID-19 Response

BYB held a ‘Share and Learn’ session where youth workers shared their mentoring resources and covid-relevant materials including online activities and online safeguarding policies. In such unprecedented times, this session was invaluable to all members of BYB!

A MLCE Staff Member said that: “collaborating worked very well. This allowed partners to receive peer support, share learning, resources and templates that simplified the transition of working to remote practices.”
