City thinking, local knowledge

Proud to support our Charity of the Year 2019

By Dina Patel

As part of our continued commitment to supporting those in need in our local area and beyond, we’re very happy to announce that after careful consideration we have selected our Charity of the Year for 2019.

Aspired Futures is a fantastic organisation, based in Blackpool, who provide long-term, life-changing therapeutic services to the most ‘hard to reach’ children and young people. Many of those that they help are from chaotic family backgrounds which bring with them poor mental health, learning difficulties, addiction and domestic violence.

The children and young people that Aspired Futures support each have their own unique and personal challenges. By providing them with a family environment where they feel safe and valued, they can be empowered to become independent and confident. Ultimately, they can become engaged citizens who are able to thrive in education, training and employment.

We believe we have a responsibility to help our local community and particularly the children and young people within it. Not only do we feel a strong emotional calling to raise awareness and funds, but our local young people are our future employees, and the future users of our services. You can find out more about the fantastic work that Aspired Futures do on their website.

Keep your eyes peeled for fundraising events and opportunities throughout the coming year, and please give generously where you can. Together we can help change the lives of local children and young people for the better, and maybe even have some fun while we do it.
