Objectives

Renaissance Foundation began in 2003 as a community group started by young people who wanted to inspire their peers to overcome their personal challenges and achieve their full potential. Over the years, Renaissance Foundation has helped over 300 young people overcome significant educational and environmental challenges and illnesses.

Renaissance Foundation is comprised of a small, committed team who have experience working with and supporting young people. The team consists of full-time staff, part-time volunteers and professional volunteers from supporting companies.

Activities

We create a 3 year support programme for young people living with significant challenges.

Who we Support:  

  • Young Carers: We support young people who provide care and are responsible for relatives affected by illness or disability.
  • Young Patients: We work with partner hospitals, including Great Ormond Street & Royal London Hospital, to support young patients.
  • School Pupils at Risk: We partner with schools in London to reach young people affected by educational issues, such as dyslexia, or by family-related challenges.

 

The Young Carers, Young Patients and School Pupils at Risk are identified through the Renaissance Foundation's established network of charities, partners and youth organizations that work with “at risk” young people. These project partners nominate young people aged 14-22 who are living in London who adhere to one of three focus areas.
