Streets of Growth our Charity of the Year
Streets of Growth
Each year we partner with a charity, who are not only the focus of our fundraising activities for that year, but with whom we support at various levels to maximise the impact of our partnership. For 2012 our Charity of the Year is Streets of Growth. To give a flavour of some of our projects, we have a team working to find Streets of Growth a new home, another team developing a social enterprise venture to give young people the opportunity to build their own businesses as well as providing mentors, a Trustee on the board and many other ad hoc projects (both pro bono (reviewing and advising on employment and pension maters) and otherwise (including working with Streets of Growth to maximise the impact of their social media footprint)).
Streets of Growth run a youth neighbourhood regeneration project in Tower Hamlets. Their approach is unique – focusing on developing leadership qualities to help young people in the community into self-sufficiency and to prevent, and move away from, poverty, violence, criminality and dependency.
