Our aim is to advance education of children and women from lower socio-economic background by assisting them in the provison of knowledge, skills, and necessary facilities. This is the best way to help them come out of poverty and become self-reliant. We have started this by supporting a well run local charitable school in Aligarh District of India which imparts completely secular modern education to children irrespective of caste or creed. This school is run by very respected and sincere social workers. The school and its activities are inspected twice a year by us to ensure that all the donations are being properly utilised. Besides, the school also trains women from poor backgrounds in basic literacy and vocational skills to make them self-sufficient. For more information, please visit www.mahak.org.uk.

We have a passionate commitment to build the church according to New Testament principles. We believe that strong local churches are to be a blessing to towns, cities and communities across our nation.

The Charlie Harrison Foundation was set up after our son Charlie died due to complications during labour. On average ten babies are stillborn (die after the 24th week of pregnancy) and seven babies die neonatally (die within the first four weeks of life) every day in the UK. This is higher than almost any other high income country. Around 500 babies die every year in the UK as a result of events during labour when the baby does not get enough oxygen. These are clearly some of the most avoidable deaths of all since, if the babys labour had been managed in a different way, the baby might have lived. The money raised by The Charlie Harrison Foundation will be used to: Provide training for midwives and neo-natal nurses Ensure appropriate support is available for parents Buy specialised equipment Initially we will support the hospitals where Charlie was cared for but eventually we hope to extend this to other hospitals in our area, to national charities that fund research and to international charities that support neonatal care in developing countries.

work-wise Charitable Fund In the UK, young people continue to be the hardest hit by the recession and are almost three times as likely as adults to be unemployed. Young people deserve the chance of a decent and productive job to build a better future. We need to tap into their talent and economic potential and must at all costs avoid disillusioned youth trapped in a cycle of working poverty or in danger of being detached altogether. By providing resources to better prepare young people we can improve their employment and life prospects. work-wise provides opportunities and experiences to educate and support young people to enable them to enter the world of work with confidence and work ready and to take their place in society as responsible citizens. work-wise has been developed by volunteers from the business community to provide young people, our future generation workforce, with a broad range of inspirational, industry focused, work related learning and development experiences supported by employers throughout. Enabling young people to better develop the personal attributes and skills - the work-wise essentials - they will need in preparation for future jobs and life. The money raised through the work-wise fund will be used to:
‘Liberty Staffordshire’ is a non-profit charity that provides young people with special needs opportunities to live and work within Staffordshire, West Midlands and Warwickshire. It was set up to combat the lack of government funding provided to help these youngsters both socially and with their physical and mental health.Queen’s Croft Special School is a learning community for youngsters who find learning and physical activities difficult. It focuses not only on education but on the individuals forward journey and transition to mainstream life. A generic Special School serving students from age 11 to 19, Queens Croft is different to any other because it continues its support way beyond education. Queens Croft and ‘Liberty Staffordshire’ We have set a task to increase fitness and muscle tone in as many young people that they can reach. They are working together to tackle the cliff drop transition between education and life beyond for people with special needs. Most educational establishments do not and pupils are left high and dry when education ceases. We provide vocational training, employment opportunities, football clubs, fitness and access to the arts for all. Due to lack of Government funding these children and young people do not get the physiotherapy that they require. The project is to set up ‘Boot Camp’ style exercise classes working with specially adapted gym equipment to tackle this issue. With funding we will run a yearly’ Iron Man’ challenge that they can compete in at their level. They will in turn be able to gain their own sponsorship to raise money for the continuing success of this project.To be able to do this we need to raise £18,000 to install specially adapted gym equipment, employ specialist trainers to run disability team games and running clubs. There is nowhere else that runs specially adapted exercise classes. We aim to integrate main stream young people when appropriate to the training sessions. There has been no other project or service where the children can socialize and integrate with others from the community. People with disabilities are unable to attend out of school gym clubs, mainstream dance classes or sports activities as others do which limits their social skills, stamina and physical development. Please help to give these children a sense of belonging and purpose. Charity No: 1054149 Find out more Facebook https://en-gb.facebook.com/libertystaffordshire/

Making life easier for cancer patients. We provide badges for cancer patients, modelled on the “Baby on board” badges popular in London, to encourage people to make room on public transport for those undergoing treatment. Even the smallest amount of kindness might shine a tiny ray of sunshine onto what can be a horribly depressing time. Being offered help or support, without having to ask, might make all the difference to someone’s day.Cancer patients don’t all lose their hair, so they are not always obvious. Everyone’s experience with cancer is different. If a little badge can help get somebody one step closer to the end of their treatment, or even just make them feel a bit better for five minutes, then its purpose has worked.We don’t want anyone to feel pressured into wearing a badge, but knowing you have one in your pocket, just in case, can be a morale booster. Even if you don’t particularly need any help, somebody asking you how you are, or wishing you luck, can give you a real boost, and can turn a bad day into a better one.
