I can’t thank this incredible charity enough. My only child was murdered. This charity has provided me not only with support but tools to help me work through such unimaginable pain.. Thank you Josh and his wonderful mum for all you have done and all you continue to do. You have made such a difference, not only to my life but to so many other lives too.

I have just watched your very moving and powerful film with Rory Stewart. Thank you for sharing your story. I used to live in London but I live in Devon now an am a volunteer with Rory's campaign (due to lots of political and community experience) and I have been and will be working very hard to get him elected so that he can do what needs to be done for London. This is just a small donation - I don't have lots of spare cash these days - but when I am working on the campaign I will be thinking of Josh and your message so that I just keep on going for as much as it takes.

What will my donation be used for?

We are looking to raise an additional £30,000 in funds to help us get our own premises with overheads covered for one year so that we can deliver practical skills to vulnerable young people and their families while offering support directly and indirectly. With youth clubs practically non existent and services slim on the ground we are filling the gap and we need your help. As a community we can make positive changes lets see how far we can go towards securing a venue.

The goal of £30,000 is ambitious I know but to run a base for a year including overheads and services is a small fortune an Art Therapist for just half a day once a month is £250.00 alone!

Once we have a base we will be asking professionals to give up their time for free for one afternoon a week so that we can run workshops to introduce young people and their families to various trades from painting and decorating, carpentry and plastering to beauty therapy and floristry to name a few. We would also use the space to hold support groups offering a safe place to share and find out about other service providers, charities and community projects.
