The London Youth Support Trust improves the quality of life for 18-30 year olds, from disadvantaged backgrounds, by supporting them so they can start and run successful businesses.

Founded 2000

  • Mission statement

    The London Youth Support Trust (LYST) is dedicated to helping young disadvantaged people become financially independent. We provide affordable business units, over three years, from where our clients grow their own business and access on site business advice and support. Our Youth Business Incubation Centres are all located in deprived areas in London which create a network of 90 start up units across the capital.

    We help unemployed young people including Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic communities, the disabled, women and ex-offenders in areas of London with high levels of economic deprivation. All our clients are on the brink of starting a business but they need affordable business premises from which to trade. Our clients do not have the means or the covenants to take on commercial premises.
