Here in the UK, the charity runs a respected tailored youth mentoring service for struggling youth in underprivileged communities that are isolated, suffer from mental health issues, involved in knife/ street crime, and antisocial behaviour.
Our aim is to support change in their lives through mentoring, providing skills development, building confidence and increasing possible education and job opportunities.
Our projects are sponsored by various funders including The National Lottery and The Mayor of London.
We are in the middle of a global pandemic. The black and ethnic minority communities have been disproportionately affected by this disease.
From the very early days of the pandemic in April 2020, The Jarrett Foundation wanted to do something to support the community. So sponsored by Tesco and the City Bridge Trust, we rallied around the community giving out FREE face masks and hand sanitisers, particularly in the early days when hand sanitisers were scarce, we imported them, then distributed them.
The Jarrett Foundation has worked with UK Primary Schools, Local Authorities, Businesses, Churches, Hospitals etc. to recycle their unwanted furniture and resources. We collected the items and shipped them to the developing world. The majority of the items we shipped were brand new, or barely used and were just surplus to requirement.
We saved 70,000 tonnes from going into UK landfills.
