We are looking for meaningful long-term partnerships that make a tangible difference to the diversity of our profession and the political sphere.

Our partners help us reach those communities whose voices are most marginalised and missing from political discourse.

Your support enables us to campaign for political education for all.

Grants from the Joseph Rowntree Reform Trust's UK Democracy Fund have enabled us to run voter registration drives and info sessions in 2021, 22 and 23 - reaching almost 20,000 young people.


The Postcode Lottery Trust's grant enabled us to host our first ever Youth Ambassador in-person meeting. We used this to prepare our social action projects and to meet with politicians from across the political spectrum.


The NHS Clinical Commissioners recruited summer interns from IHAV's Youth Ambassadors and one of them is now a member of their team. We have also provided public policy training for their team.
