What is Co-Funding?

Co-funding with the ALMT allows individuals, other Trusts and Foundations, and Companies to contribute funds directly to individual, vetted and approved, project partnerships. With fifteen years of experience awarding grants and working in partnership with children’s organisations around the world, the ALMT is best placed to support you in your philanthropy.

In line with our commitment to high quality holiday activities we are delighted to be supporting the Avenues Youth Project for their Easter Holiday programme for the children and young people of North Westminster. As we emerge from Covid-19 it is more important than ever to get children involved in positive activities which promote socialisation skills and mental wellbeing.

 

This two-year funding will provide 8 days of activities during the Easter Holidays in 2021 and 2022 for up to 100 young people. The programme will focus on fitness, providing daily structure and support, developing positive attitudes, serving daily healthy lunches, whilst observing social distancing guidelines.

 

Activities take place in the professional kitchen, dance studio, sports hall, class room, art and design studio, music studio and radio broadcasting suite. Alongside socialisation, fitness and skills activities, the qualified and experienced team of youth workers run workshops and facilitated discussions on mental wellbeing, healthy lifestyles, staying safe and other issues they wish to discuss. A close relationship with social services allows The Avenues to refer children with more complex needs that emerge.
