Samantha Sykes Foundation Trust

Charity description

Samantha Sykes Foundation Trust logo
Vulnerable young people, brought up in care, deserve the same chances as others to achieve their full potential. The Trust provides simple things like help with interviews, travel expenses, books equipment and support /advice to enable access to further/higher education.

The work of this charity is carried out on behalf of, and in the memory of Samantha Sykes who tragically died, at 18 years old, with her friend who was "looked after" by the local authority. Sami was murdered because of the support she selflessly gave to two young people, who were in need of love, protection and guidance and who would have benefitted from the work of this charity. Our promise to Sami is that we will bring together our communities, to support like minded people, who believe, as we do, that ALL children deserve an equal chance in life, no matter what their circumstances. With the help of not-for-profit organisations, educational establishments and the local community, we aim to support these young people through education, mentoring and pastoral care. We aim to inspire these children, to believe in their own self worth and achieve their full potential
