Congratulations to our project grant recipients!

In the first of three funding rounds for 2024, the Stef & Philips Foundation provided 38 individual grants and 2 project grants totalling £10,000 to deliver projects in 21 London boroughs, from Enfield in the north to Croydon in the south.

The project grants have been awarded to two organisations, including Give Youth a Break, a social inclusion and welfare charity offering educational and recreational activities for disadvantaged youth across North London via after school clubs. With our support, they will be able to accompany their programmes with the provision of hot meals for children and young people residing in temporary and emergency accommodation!

Upon being awarded the grant, Give Youth a Break said:

We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to the Stef & Philips Foundation for their invaluable support and this additional funding which will help families in the local community living in temporary or emergency accommodation. Many of those we support don’t have the opportunity to share mealtimes with their children – with this grant, families will be able to enjoy a hot meal together.

Also awarded a project grant is Art4Space, which delivers creative workshops for displaced families living in temporary and emergency accommodation in Lambeth. The workshops encourage creative expression, support with holistic wellbeing, and provide a platform for families to connect with each other.

Commenting on the support, Art4Space said:

On behalf of the team at Art4Space we would like to thank Stef & Philips for the wonderful support towards our creative workshops for children and young people of families in temporary accommodation. This support will make all the difference and we look forward to sharing the positive impact it will have.

Alexandra Taliadoros, Director of the Stef & Philips Foundation said:

After launching just a few months ago we’ve already supported more than 600 children living in temporary and emergency accommodation with Christmas gifts, and now being able to grant £10,000 towards community projects and individual projects is truly incredible. To have made such a positive impact in such a short period of time just goes to show how vital this funding is for so many people as we go into the next funding rounds. We are immensely grateful to those who are committed to making a difference to the lives of others and supported the Foundation – their generosity made these grants possible.

The third round of our grants is currently open – you can apply HERE.

To be eligible for Foundation support, individuals must be living in temporary and emergency accommodation in a London borough. Organisations seeking funding must focus on community initiatives promoting social inclusion and welfare for those in temporary and emergency accommodation in a London borough.
