We design and manage bespoke youth and staff programmes, training and events for organisations across the UK.
MISSION 44 | YOUTH BOARD
Through grantmaking, research and advocacy, Mission 44 support young people from underserved backgrounds to succeed by narrowing opportunity gaps in education, employment and wider society.
Mission 44 stems from Sir Lewis Hamilton’s decades-long fight for social change. This fight was further ignited by the events of 2020 and the inequalities brought into stark contrast by the effects of the pandemic.
HUDL recruits, trains and manages a new team of 12 youth board members to share power and decisions.

THE LISTENING FUND | YOUNG ADVISORS
Ten advisers sit at the heart of the Fund’s second phase. Involving young people in these roles helps the Fund live its values and brings invaluable challenges and insight into how to improve accountability. The advisers have designed their own grant-making strategy.
The Blagrave Trust has appointed HUDL to facilitate the advisers’ meetings, training, and activities to establish independence from the funders investing in TLF.
INVOLVING YOUNG PEOPLE VALUES
The Involving Young People Collective spent over 18 months working alongside Esmée Fairbairn Foundation to co-create a set of values that can indicate best practices for involving young people.
We support and advise organisations on involving young people, using our experience and principles from our research and experience.
CAREER PATHWAY PROGRAMME FOR SCHOOLS
The Damilola Taylor Trust has a number of strands to its work, all of which are designed for vulnerable young people, particularly in inner-city south London.
We focus on young people’s personal and social development needs and equip them with the confidence and skills to face the challenges of adulthood, improving their life chances.

THE FUTURE COMMUNITIES COLLECTIVE
The Co-op Foundation has launched the Future Communities Fund, which aims to fund organisations who are delivering work around the crossover (intersection) of two strategic priorities, diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) and youth activism, power and transparent governance. These form two of out of the six strategic priorities of the Foundation that were set by almost 100 young people who participated in a study to create the Future Communities Vision.
The Future Communities Collective works in partnership with the Co-op Foundation to shape the delivery of the Future Communities Fund and, alongside two of the Foundation’s trustees, will make funding decisions on the £1.5m that is available to distribute.
