Creative Futures Appeal

Celebrating young people in Crystal Palace

The pandemic has had a huge impact on young people’s futures and this is going to play out for a long time to come. We talked to some local young people earlier this year and they told us how difficult it has been for them and how worried they are about their future.

In response we are fundraising for our Creative Futures project which will give up to 150 young people aged 12-25 from Crystal Palace housing estates a chance to make their voices heard while developing skills to help them secure future employment this summer.

The funds raised will give them a chance to express their ideas while being coached by high quality artists to create and perform their own artistic work. Please click here to find out all about the project and what we want to offer young people this summer to help them get back on track.

We have applied for grants to support this project and Southwark Council have agreed to fund outreach work on the Kingswood Estate which is great news.

We are also launching our Creative Futures Appeal which is part of The Big Give Week on 8-15 June which means that your donation during this week will be match funded by The Big Give and The Childhood Trust.

Your donation will be doubled which is fantastic!

So if this appeal is close to your heart and you would like to be advised on when this Appeal launches then please click here to register your interest and we will be in touch in early June.

We look forward to hearing from you and thank you for your support for young people in need in Crystal Palace.
