Thanks to the generosity of our supporters and careful management of our resources, the Trustees were delighted to be able to make grants to four charities working with young people in London earlier this year.
The Big House - a theatre project working with young people who have been through the care system
Boxing Futures - a charity using non-contact Boxing & Boxercise training to reach out and engage with disadvantaged young people
Leap - providing conflict management training to young people and professionals working with them
Young Urban Arts Foundation - engaging with vulnerable and disadvantaged young people through music and other arts
All of the grants were made towards specific, costed projects and we will post further reports on the outcomes in due course. The grant recipients were decided in a thorough process, which included the review of written applications and a visit to each charity and a vote by the trustees.
We expect to launch our 2019 grant process soon and welcome applications for grants of up to £5,000 from charities working with young people in London. More details will be posted on the website shortly.
