Strategic Partnership Board members share why they are pleased to be supporting Southwark Giving:
Wakefield & Tetley Trust:
“The Wakefield & Tetley Trust works to invest in charitable activity in Southwark, Tower Hamlets and the City of London. Our priority is to support work that tackles significant disadvantage and helps people who have limited opportunities and choices.
We are pleased to have funded the independent research “A Tale of Two Southwarks” and to have been part of the Advisory Group during the development phase of Southwark Giving. Southwark is a fantastic place to grow up, live and work, but as the research has highlighted, it is also a borough where some people face significant challenges and inequality. The Trust has therefore committed to supporting the ongoing delivery of the Scheme in 2017/18, and is excited to work collaboratively with other local charities, businesses, and SMEs to increase the amount of time, talent and money that is invested in Southwark.”
Stuart Morganstein, Chair of Trustees
United St. Saviour’s Charity:
“United St Saviour’s Charity is really pleased to be part of Southwark Giving. With our long history of funding groups in Southwark, and our in-depth knowledge of the local area, we are convinced that an initiative of this nature has the potential to make a huge difference. We believe that our investment in Southwark Giving will help to harness the latent energy, enthusiasm and resources that sits within the community, voluntary and business sector – to create a better Southwark for everyone.”
Martyn Craddock, United St Saviour’s Charity
The Peter Minet Trust:
“Peter Minet Trust is delighted to become a Founder Funder of Southwark Giving. We see Southwark Giving’s development as a very positive means of working with funders, corporates, charities and residents to raise awareness of the diverse and pressing needs of the borough and find ways to increase financial and voluntary support for organisations working to meet those needs. We believe that collaborating with others is an important way of maximising the resources we have and look forward to working with Southwark Giving.”
Simon Hebditch, Chair, Peter Minet Trust
