Testimonials

The funding that The Queen’s Trust has provided over the past few years has been instrumental in us providing support to young people affected by cancer. Thanks to the grant we have been able to host a weekend of escape where young cancer patients can question cancer experts and share experiences with others their own age. We look forward to building on this over the next year with other events and programmes, reaching more young people and continuing to support them through an incredibly difficult time in their lives

Siobhan Dunn, Chief Executive, Teenage Cancer Trust

The face of educational inequality is changing. London schools have improved so rapidly over the past ten years that even children in the city’s poorest neighborhoods can expect to do better than the average pupil living outside the capital. It is rural and coastal areas that are now set to benefit the most from an emphasis on raising standards and this is a crucial area of focus for Teach First in the coming years. We’re grateful for the support and commitment of The Queen’s Trust in helping us to give every child access to a great education  — regardless of how much their parents earn or where in the UK they live

 

Brett Wigdortz OBE, Founder & Chief Executive, Teach First

We’re thrilled and honoured to have the support of the Queen’s Trust. This money means that we are now on our way to more than doubling the number of young people we are able to offer this life changing experience to. By 2016, their collective endeavour could be making a daily difference to over 20,000 pupils growing up in disadvantage across England’s three largest cities.

Sophie Livingstone, CEO, City Year

Mr Fairbairn [Teach First Teacher] transformed my life, and for that I owe him everything. All I can do to repay him is to use the knowledge he gave me to do something special with my life.

Mohamed, age 18

The support of The Queen’s Trust and St James’s Place elevates our charity to a national level and will have a radical effect on our ambitious plans to extend the reach of our Youth Zones project.

Bill Holroyd, Chairman, OnSide

The National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain (NYOGB)  is delighted and privileged to have received this valuable support from The Queen’s Trust, enabling us to launch Inspire. Inspire is a new programme of work that will empower our teenage members to work with the next generation of talented musicians around the UK.  Inspire is part of our ambitious plan to bring  the sound and inspiration of  NYOGB to every teenager in the UK.

Sarah Alexander, Artistic Director and Chief Executive at the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain

It feels great to know that you have the power to make a difference.  You always think that other people can change society, but I have the capability to do so as well.  Even in the classroom, inspiring kids to ask, “Sir, can I do what you’re doing?”  Many have the talent within them, and organisations like City Year help to bring this out
