Our vision is of a world where young people have high aspirations; the opportunity to develop their potential; the chance to be architects of their own future; to play a full part in society and to be valued and recognised for the positive things they achieve.
To enable young people (aged 11 – 25 years in London, Essex & the Algarve area of Portugal), to achieve their potential by inspiring, investing in, developing and promoting activities that increase their personal, social, emotional and physical development.
The Jack Petchey Foundation draws on the ideology, vision and values of its Patron Jack Petchey CBE who epitomises the saying: “If you think you can, you can!”
We have been part of the scheme since 2008 and we are able to select 3 students per year to be our award winners. Along with a certificate and badge the winners each receive £200 pounds which they can use to benefit their classmates and friends. So far this money has been used to buy new art equipment for Shed 13, a trip to the theatre, sightseeing on London on the London Duck and a trip to Stonehenge among other things.
