Start It Right cic is a new organisation established in May 2020 with a mission to elevate the wellbeing, prospects and community spirit of young people in Croydon.
We believe in providing opportunities for young people that will encourage encourage and empower them to flourish as individuals and raise their aspirations.
Our team is made up three managing directors, four board members and volunteers who are all passionate about supporting local young people to be the best version of themselves.
From feedback we have received from our young people, we know they are curious to explore their wider community and what facilities are available for them.
We hope to use the funds raised to continue to deliver safe and stimulating environments through our holiday playscheme, where young people can nurture their creativity, build on their intellect and develop skilful thinking.
This will include offering unique and affordable opportunities for our young people where they can go on external trips to educational and recreational facilities within the local area.
We will also use the funds to expand our team through the use of volunteers who can further support young people with their personal development and make a real difference to their local community.
