Meet the Team

It takes a strong partnership to support young people to help them engage in local democracy and civic life which means there's always an unseen list of people who are helping! Meet our core team and Young Advisors who work with the Young Mayor and are part of the Young Mayors Project.

In Loving Memory 

Malcolm Ball

1959 - 2021

As a dedicated Youth Worker in Lewisham for the past 40 years Malcolm has worked with young people and been involved since the beginning developing the Young Mayors programme. 

Mal first began working with young people at the age of 17 at St Michael's Community Centre, New Cross.

Through his passion and dedication, Mal encouraged young people to be who they want to be, to trust and believe in themselves.


He broadened their world views, teaching respect, kindness, honesty, and friendship. He helped young people to create the world they wanted to live in. 

He has left a lasting impact on us all and will continue to do so, a real Lewisham Legend!
