Charity in the Community
In recent years the Livery has concentrated its charitable giving on a number of charities that provide significant support to the community around the City of London.
The many charities we are currently supporting include:
- Children’s Country Holidays Fund which enables children from inner city London to experience the countryside, seaside and the Arts.
- Hackney Quest encourages young people to attend school and to value achievement.
LEAP Confronting Conflict. Training and/or helping young people at risk or involved in gang crime
- The Tower Hamlets Mission has been supported; it runs a three stage residential drug and alcohol service for men who are suffering from addiction. Many of those seeking help have lost everything, their home, family, jobs and friends.
- The St Giles Trust aims to help ex-prisoners settle into their communities after release from prison and not to re-offend.
