Established in 2011 following donations and fundraising activities, Includem’s Young Person’s Fund provides small amounts of support for young people in a range of different ways to improve their lives and the lives of their families.
The fund was initially conceived as a ‘dream’ fund, offering our young people special experiences, or help towards achieving life aspirations. However, it soon became clear that for many young people, their ‘dream’ was to have the basics that many of us take for granted- such as a bed, or warm clothing. We are committed to providing the funding for these requests to improve the lives of young people and their families.
The fund allows us to go above and beyond our support work, supporting young people as much as possible to achieve their goals, focus their energy in positive ways, build their confidence and develop their social skills.
Since 2011 we have received incredibly generous donations totalling over £43,000. We are grateful to all the individuals and organisations who have supported the fund over the years.
