Making a Difference to Children

The Giving Project is a new project bringing community groups and businesses together to make a difference to disadvantaged children in Leicestershire. 

I've teamed up with a group of business people to tackle disadvantages faced by children in a disadvantaged estate in Leicester and a former coalmining town northwest of the city.

We’re joining forces with charities, councils and residents to launch schemes that include keeping teenagers motivated to stay in school, helping excluded young people become community leaders and one-to-one mentoring.

Working with community groups that already in the heart of their communities is great because they’re best placed to know how to reach local people.

Having the opportunity to work on problem solving with other businesses is very enjoyable. We’re all committed to investing time, ideas and donations to kick-start this exciting new project. I'm convinced that using private, public and charitable expertise to solve local issues is the way forward.

Supporting local children and young people now will help Leicestershire to prosper in future.
