Community charity chief takes top role at Mayor’s Fund for London

Mayor’s Fund for London has recruited Jim Minton as its next chief executive.

He joins the Fund, which supports young people in the capital, in September from Toynbee Hall, a community charity in East London.

He has previously been director of membership and communications at London Youth and is also a former senior Home Office civil servant.

“It is a real honour to have the opportunity to lead the team at the Mayor’s Fund for London, and to work with the fantastic range of partners who support the charity,” said Minton.

“Young Londoners face huge challenges, but with the right platforms and support, can shape our capital city so that they can take advantage of the opportunities it offers. The Mayor’s Fund is in a great position to offer those platforms and through its programmes and partnerships to give that support.

“I’ve been hugely privileged over the last 5 years to lead Toynbee Hall and have learned in this time how organisations can begin to shift power to communities and engage them in shaping positive change. I am looking forward to using that experience – and continuing to learn from the team, trustees and partners – to ensure the Mayor’s Fund builds on the great foundations they and my predecessor have created.”

The Fund’s chair Tim Roberts added: “Jim brings a wealth of experience to this role and we are excited to work with him to ensure the Fund continues to do as much as it can to support young Londoners to achieve their full potential.”
