Working towards our long-term goal of a ‘home-away-from-home for care leavers’ we approached local authorities, cooperate trusts and funders.
Since 2015, we have received small grants, donations and gift in kind support from Islington Council, Arsenal in the Community, Bates Wells Braithwaite, The Peel Institute and donations from people in the community. These grants and donations are greatly appreciated, and remind us how much our supporters value what we do!
Since 2017, we have worked closely with Islington’s Leaving Care Team and we now support over 60 Islington care leavers a year. We host regular day trips at term time, entrepreneurial development programmes and an annual Christmas Day Party at the Arsenal Hub for Islington care leavers and their children.
Go Forward has a dedicated team of supporters, care leavers, and volunteers who are continuously raising awareness and applying for funding.
We have some very exciting plans for 2019, including our launch of The Hub in October 2019, so watch this space, and contact us if you would like to get involved, either by giving your time as a volunteer or by making regular or single donations to support our services.
