Lynk Up Crew

The Lynk Up Crew (LUC) is a group of young Londoners aged 7-15, who meet monthly to address the issues young Londoners face.

What is the LUC?

The LUC members are young advisers to the Mayor. Its members contribute to shaping policy and represent the often-unheard voices of young Londoners in the 7-15 year old age group.

The LUC are a good reflection of modern day London and its diversity, with young people coming from a cross section of different areas, cultural backgrounds and religious beliefs.

What has the LUC achieved?

The LUC has worked on issues around the following:

  • Obesity
  • Environment
  • 2012 legacy
  • Bullying
  • Families
  • Labelling
  • Drugs and alcohol

The LUC regularly feeds back to the Mayor with solutions and ideas around the issues its members are exploring.

In July 2013, the Diana Champion Volunteer Award was presented to the LUC. This was in recognition of all the hard work the team has contributed to dealing with issues for their age group.
