The Ormiston Trust is an organisation working to improve life chances for young people in communities across the country and is committed to ensuring that young people’s voices and priorities are at the heart of what we do.
As a strong supporter of the #iWill Movement, and a match funder to the#iWill Fund, we firmly believe in the value and benefits of youth social action for our young people and our local communities.
Currently, we are in the process of delivering our multi-million-pound #WeWill programme which will enable tens of thousands of students in England to participate in social action projects alongside our regular funding programmes for our schools. We have also established our Youth Advisory Council to bring youth engagement into our organisational structure and are committed to supporting our school communities to facilitate meaningful engagement through the development of toolkit resources.
Therefore, we are proud to become a signatory to the #iwill Power of Youth Charter that commits us to empower young people through social action and amplifying their voices in the years to come.
