The Mayor

As an independent charity, the Mayor's Fund for London is not part of my administration and not subject therefore to MQTs.

However, I am aware that The Mayors Fund for London team has been working with delivery partners to understand the landscape of breakfast club provision in London, with the aim of mapping existing provision to schools where the numbers of children receiving free school meals exceed 40 per cent. It expects to have put together this picture by the end of the summer. Once complete, it will invite consultation with stakeholders, including London boroughs currently not involved in the scheme, with the aim of creating a roll-out plan which it hopes to announce by January 2014.
