We’d like to say a HUGE Thank You to our Trust, Foundation and Corporate sponsors. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to help so many people find their voice.
Thanks to the Jack Petchey Foundation, we are able to deliver the hugely successful Jack Petchey’s “Speak Out” Challenge! programme. This allows us to train around 18,000 Year 10 students in 550 state schools in London and Essex each year. Now in it’s tenth year, the “Speak Out” Challenge! programme has trained over 160,000 students.
The Jack Petchey Foundation, established in 1999, gives grants to programmes and projects that benefit young people aged 11-25. Since it was established The Foundation has donated over £100 million to a wide range of organisations and schools within London and Essex. The Foundation is eager to help young people take advantage of opportunities and play a full part in society.
The Rank Foundation is a grant giving charitable trust to causes within the UK. Rank believe in encouraging and developing leadership amongst young people through youth training and education programmes. Additionally, they focus on supporting disadvantaged people and those isolated in the community through ill-health, advancing age or disability.
Time to Shine
This is a programme that supports young people taking their first steps towards the working world. A charity known to the Rank are offered the opportunity to employ one person for a specific role that will help that charity deliver its mission. We have welcomed two members of staff thanks to this grant and so we appreciate the value of the funding.
NCS is a government-funded initiative that aims to support community engagement, social action and social mixing among young people aged 15-17 years. It is a huge project, taking place in summer holidays and half term with activities in London, Surrey, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, West Midlands Greater Manchester and parts of Lancashire and parts of Yorkshire.
We take pride in being part of this truly remarkable programme, powered by The Challenge Network.
James and Al were fantastic. I’m delighted to have a CD to take home with me that I can watch, which will be helpful for me to improve.
