Charities raising money for young people
Website: http://www.katyholmestrust.co.ukThe Katy Holmes Trust was set up in memory of our beautiful 10 year old daughter Katy who died from a rare brain tumour in January 2012 after a brave 3 month battle. We have since discovered that brain tumours are the BIGGEST cancer killer of children in the UK and yet the most poorly funded by Government who only give 0.7% towards research. Our aim is to raise the money to fund paediatric brain tumour research ourselves and find the cure

The Street Soccer Foundation is a non-profit organisation which uses football as a catalyst to improve the lives of vulnerable and homeless young people across the country. Our nationally acclaimed flagship 'Street Soccer Academy' provides a 10-week learning and development programme for 16-24 year olds (male and female), offering selected young participants a fusion of professional football coaching, growth mindset training, and employability-driven ‘Skills to Succeed’ workshops: all to enable course participants to be ready and able to move into Work, Education or Further Training on successful graduation. We also run a Street Soccer Schools' programme over a 10-week period (for Years 7-11 students), providing vulnerable and disengaged school students a mix of professional football coaching for health and well-being purposes, in addition to the training of a positive mindset, to help build confidence, self-belief, aspiration and emotional intelligence.
Fundamentally, both courses use the power of football to help young people want - and be able - to make a change in their lives for the better. The proven impact of both programmes instils greater confidence and self-belief in young people, improves their health and well-being, and empowers participants to take positive action and encourages them throughout to reach their goals, both on and off the pitch, and to inspire others to do the same.

Young Epilepsy is a national charity whose focus is providing a range of services for children with epilepsy and other associated conditions.
When parents and carers have had the diagnosis from the doctor, often without explanation on how it will impact family life - we take time to explain what epilepsy is, how the condition can be managed and how healthcare workers, teachers, friends and family can work together to give the support that is needed using specific resources that we provide. We focus exclusively on supporting children and young people.
