Supporting young people this Christmas

This year we are supporting the Stephen Lawrence Trust, who support and inspire talented young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, enabling them to succeed.

We are also supporting Centrepoint, who provide homeless young people with accommodation, health support and life skills in order to get them back into education, training and employment.

Find out more about the charities and how you can donate.

Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust

The Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust is committed to supporting young people and transforming their lives by improving the world they live in and enabling them to develop their skills and talent. Here’s a little more about some of their projects:

Diverse Recruitment

The Trust works with recruitment specialists Urban, where they have set up a partnership to support and connect skilled under-represented workers to employers.

Schools and Education

Their ‘Pathways to Professions’ course is a three-year programme, funded by the Clothworker Foundation, which provides those aged 13–15 years with skills, opportunities and knowledge to build their career aspirations. They work with schools in London, Manchester and Birmingham, with the majority of students they work with coming from BAME, minority or disadvantaged backgrounds.

Built Environment

They support young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and under-represented groups to study architecture, gain work experience and qualify as architects.


The Trust supports a network of over 90 community groups that work on providing support on issues such as education, employment and health, where inequality has such an impact. You can see a list of the community organisations they work with here.

Building Inclusive Futures Consulting

Their consulting work is their Social Enterprise and includes building diversity and recruitment strategies as well as organisational change, coaching and developing counselling, community engagement and much more.

Every year, Centrepoint supports over 14,000 young people. They do this through numerous programmes and their work is vital in helping those who are homeless. Here’s a little more about the work they do:
