Our 2014 Annual Report has just been published and it's available to download on our website. We are very proud of last Financial Year's achievements and you should be too, as it is only possible because of your generous support.
"Through 2013/2014 we have seen thousands of demonstrations of generosity. Inspired donors, Founding Members, supporters that have included the Foundation in their Will, and fundraisers of all sorts joined together.
The Foundation team is committed to demonstrating accountability and transparency as to where these donations go and what impact they achieve. To this end, we strive to connect donors with the outcomes of their support, be it through tours of the programs, publishing program results or the sharing of stories.
In 2013/14 I was pleaseed that our income was steady and expenses well managed, to deliver a small surplus whilst maintaining our committment to fund Triple Care Farm, Creative Youth Initiative, South West Youth Services and The Shopfront, all of which help change the lives of young people in crisis.
There were many young people that I met during the year whose stories of desperation, change and hope inspired me, but none more so than a brave graduate of Triple Care Farm. I got to know him on several visits to the Farm and watched him rebuild a relationship with his family. Then, approaching his graduation, he and his father participated as guests in the Abseil for Youth. Just before they descended, his father turned to me and said, 'thank you for giving us our son back'. I watched the two of them embrace before completing the challenge together. It is moments like this that make me proud of what the Foundation continues to achieve."
