Why give to SASW Trust?

We are charity local to Southport and survive purely on donations (Charity No. 1075068).

We are feeling the need greater than ever to create safe spaces for young people to explore the big issues of life and faith. Inspired by, and through the lens of our own Christian faith, we’re spotting more and more needs for pastoral support, encouragement and care for children and young people right on our doorsteps and are committed to doing all we can in partnership with and alongside schools to resource young people during this time, to bring a message of hope.

They say it takes a village to raise a child – well, it takes all of us as Southport to meet these needs of children and young people in our town, bringing them hope for a better future.

The costs of just keeping up with the work we are currently achieving locally is around £45-50k per year, not accounting for the many extra hours volunteered.

Post-COVID19 Giving

Lockdown has hit hard for so many people, organisations and worshipping communities. As expected, our treasurer has a huge job on his hands trying to balance everything. Please could we extend the opportunity to anyone who has made it through lockdown with relative financial stability to lend a supporting hand to those personal financial supporters of Southport & Area Schools Worker Trust, and church congregations who we know and understand aren’t able to contribute the generous figures that they have done previously. At this time more than ever, please could we extend the ask of our trustees for you to help share that load, so that we might carry forwards a vision of hope to the children and young people of this town moving forwards.
