Newham Giving is an innovative local giving programme which supports community projects that provide a lifeline to families struggling to provide activities for children and young people during the school holidays.
30% of the population in Newham is aged under 20 and 2 in every 5 children are considered to be living in poverty so free and low-cost, local school holiday activities are vital for supporting local families in need.
What does Newham Giving support?
Over the past 3 years Newham Giving has been incredibly successful; £221,650 has been awarded to 17 local community groups, engaging 3,145 children and young people.
A variety of activities have been supported from: arts programmes for young carers at Create Arts, a youth-led summer playscheme in the Britannia Village led by West Silvertown Village Community Foundation, mentoring at Lauriston Lights and training young people in mechanical engineering to build and race their own go-karts at Beckton Skills Centre.
How does Newham Giving work?
Newham Giving works by combining donations from donors of all sizes, enabling everyone from large businesses to small-to-medium enterprises, to local residents, to contribute and make a difference.
By working together, we can create a bigger impact on children and young people as well as the wider community than working on our own; every £10,000 raised for Newham Giving supports a further 100 children.
