Thanks to the incredible generosity and support of our riders and Alumni over the past 2 years, WWMT have been able to award new grants to some fantastic grass roots projects. Here are just a few:
Reaching Higher works with young people in South Norwood, London though clubs, sports and activities encouraging them to work together to break down territorial barriers and create community cohesion. WWMT is supporting Reaching Higher to take referrals from Croydon Youth Offending Service of young people who are considered as being at risk of offending.
The Bay Tree Centre
The Baytree Centre INTO SCHOOL projects aims to support newly arrived migrant and refugee girls to transition to their life in the UK. The project specifically will aim at supporting girls to improve their understanding and communication in English, support them to get a school place and transition into a new system, increase their networks and support them to feel safe and access other services to have better chances in life.
Hackney Quest aims to give young people, families and members of the community the practical and emotional support they need to develop and pursue their aspirations and deal positively with life’s challenges.
They help build confidence, develop new skills, widen perspectives and opportunities, as well as uncover existing strengths and capacities. They connect people and help provide an environment where they can learn from each other through forging supportive relationships that realise the potential for positive change that lies within individuals, families, and as a community.
Hounslow Action for Youth
Young people living in Hounslow, aged between 7 and 18, come along to take part in a big range of fun activities.
The projects and clubs on offer are specially designed to meet the different needs of young people in the area, some of whom face big challenges in their lives. At our projects, they feel safe and gain new skills whilst having a great time. Crucially, they also get the support they need to grow into confident, capable adults who can reach their full potential.
School of Hard Knocks
SOHK for Schools is a unique three-year intervention that uses rugby coaching, classroom sessions and mentoring to improve attendance and behaviour at school. Their ultimate aim is to help at-risk children avoid permanent exclusion.
