The British Youth Council extends a massive THANK YOU to all those who supported our participation in 2022’s The Big Give! A particular thanks goes to those who contributed financially: our pledgers, donors and partners – and of course, our charity champion, Four Acre Trust.
This year was an ambitious one for us: we aimed to double the target we’d had in previous years, and thanks to your fabulous contributions, which were match funded by the Four Acre Trust, we were able to raise the huge total of £8,932 including Gift Aid!
Your contributions will now provide us with much-needed funding for our Youth Leadership Programme, which brings new leadership opportunities to 80 young people across the UK who wouldn’t normally have access to this kind of opportunity. They’ll receive the support, training and networks they need to become future leaders and inspire positive change for people like them.
All donations raised will be allocated specifically to our Young Leaders Collective, which focuses on supporting young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, such as those experiencing homelessness, those living in poverty or in care, refugees, LGBTQAI+ young people, young women, refugees, and those with physical or learning disabilities. We facilitate their development and competency in key leadership skills to increase their participation in and lead effective social change.
We could not have achieved this without your kindness and generosity. You made it possible to #SponsorAYoungLeader of future.
