Global’s Make Some Noise is already improving the lives of 200,000 disadvantaged children and young people from across the UK.
These youngsters will get a brighter future thanks to the funding we've given to over 100 children's and young people's charities, totalling a staggering £812,857.
We're supporting children & young people who may have been affected by illness, disability, bereavement or lack of opportunity. Take a look at the full list of charities we have supported.
One of these charities is Haringey Shed (pictured), who will be using Global's Make Some Noise funding for an arts residential.
Jim Shepley, Executive Director of Haringey Shed, said; "The 5-day programme will give young people access to a week of positive activities that will build confidence, team skills, communication and other life skills through a mix of performing arts and adventure activities. For some young people, especially those with disabilities, it will be their only opportunity of a holiday and for many families it will provide a respite from their often hectic lives.
The funding from Global’s Make Some Noise will allow us to make a real difference to the lives of young people by engaging them in positive activities and giving them an experience they will remember for many years to come."
