Youth organisation JLGB is set to launch a fundraising campaign to make its programmes accessible for all. 

The donations will be earmarked for vital subsidised activities, programmes, and social & volunteering opportunities to thousands of young people.

A statement said JLGB is “supporting young people’s journey to adulthood, helping them build their confidence and providing tools to thrive in modern society”.

JLGB CEO Neil Martin said: “For now over 127 years, JLGB has always been there for our community in times of crisis, stepping up to support children, young people and their families. Today’s young people are growing up in an tremendous time of upheaval, still grappling with the impacts of a global pandemic and now in the midst of a cost of living crisis.

“Supporting JLGB will give thousands more young people the best start in life and equip them with the practical and emotional tools they need to face the challenges of their future.”

Donations will be doubled over the 36 hours of the campaign starting on Sunday.

Being a community platform means so much more than producing a newspaper and website. One of our proudest roles is media partnering with our invaluable charities to amplify the outstanding work they do to help us all.


There’s no shortage of oys in the world but Jewish News takes every opportunity to celebrate the joys too, through projects like Night of Heroes, 40 Under 40 and other compelling countdowns that make the community kvell with pride.


In the first collaboration between media outlets from different faiths, Jewish News worked with British Muslim TV and Church Times to produce a list of young activists leading the way on interfaith understanding.


Royal Mail issued a stamp honouring Holocaust hero Sir Nicholas Winton after a Jewish News campaign attracted more than 100,000 backers. Jewish Newsalso produces special editions of the paper highlighting pressing issues including mental health and Holocaust remembrance.
