Help support our youth by donating to Youthdirect

Youthdirect is based near the border of London Boroughs of Hackney and Haringey  and aims to aid the social, emotional and educational development of the local community children and young people through confidence and self esteem building activities where participants are given the space and freedom to express themselves in a non judgemental environment.

Youthdirect provides out of school educational and recreational activities for children and young people who attend local independent schools. Families of these children are usually large families that strain finances, struggle to pay school fees and the schools attended are under resourced and under funded. We support these families by offering free or minimal cost out of school and holiday activities.

We need your help to fund these events, activities and classes. If you would like to donate, please click the link below, where you will be taken to our fundraising page. Your donations are appreciated!
