Barts Charity “Your Stance” Project

We are delighted that you are funding Your Stance – a project delivering violence reduction training to young people in Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest, and Newham. Project Lead, Ana Waddington works alongside experts from Barts Health NHS Trust to teach young people in East London skills including life support, CPR and how to stop bleeding. Ana’s remarkable work on Your Stance was recognised by The Royal College of Nursing who awarded her Nurse of the Year 2020.

Here at Barts Charity, we are incredibly proud of Ana and her team in what they have achieved in tackling youth violence. This extraordinary project was made possible thanks to Charles S French Charitable Trust and we are extremely grateful to have their support.

YourStance – Saving Lives with Grassroot Teaching

In association with

The Sick Children’s Trust

We are extremely grateful to The Charles S French Charitable Trust for your generous contributions over the last three decades. Our aim is to give families a warm and comfortable place to stay when their seriously ill child is admitted to hospital, giving them one less thing to worry about at such a challenging time. We can’t thank you enough for your continued support, which means we are able to keep families together when they need it.

Changing Faces

The Charles S French Charitable Trust’s support over the past 10 years has been key to helping Changing Faces to build our credibility and capacity to support, advocate and campaign for people with visible difference across the UK. Thank you so much.

With the support of the Charles S French Charitable Trust a total of 887 people and their families have received face-to-face information and advice via our Changing Faces Wellbeing Practitioners, including face-to-face or by phone, small group workshops for children, young people and families and regular get-togethers for adults to meet and socialise in a safe space. 92% of service users improved against self-defined outcomes.

Lennox Children’s Cancer Fund

The news that a child is seriously ill is difficult enough to cope with, without the situation being made worse with money worries. It is important that families are supported throughout this period and although there are medical professionals and organisations helping the child to get better, it is quite often areas that the majority of us don’t see and think about, that will effect families, especially the parents. The Care Grants projects is there to relieve some stress, take some pressure off so that parents can concentrate fully on their poorly child, help to give families a break from the norm, or to bring some enjoyment to a time when it is most needed. In total, 7 children and their families, including many siblings, benefitted from your generous donation.
