Do something special this Christmas. Support The Lowry by donating to make a positive impact on young people’s mental health and well-being in Salford.
Since 2011 our generous audiences, patrons and supporters have helped us raise an astonishing £240,000 through the Christmas Appeal, which has directly supported our life-changing Learning and Engagement work in Salford.
This year the Christmas Appeal will support our work with vulnerable and at-risk young people in Salford, aiming to positively impact young people’s mental health and well-being across a broad range of our projects.
Salford has some of the highest levels of poor mental health in the country (Salford Mental Wellbeing Strategy). Research shows that 15% of children in the lowest socio-economic group develop mental health problems, which can lead to poor mental health and life chances as adults.
Funds raised in The Lowry’s Christmas Appeal will support work co-created with young people who are disengaged from formal education, those with experience of the care system, young carers, young parents and those experiencing homelessness. This will provide vital help to some of the most vulnerable young people, supporting them to develop key skills, improve their well-being and create better futures for themselves.
Thank you in advance for your generosity and support.
The Lowry Centre Trust is a registered charity no. 1053962.
Help us reach our target of £25,000. Any funds raised over this will be ploughed into Learning & Engagement team’s overheads and running costs that will support our projects to happen.
Last year, we raised over £30,000 for our Christmas Appeal 2018 – which went towards supporting a creative project with teenage parents and their children in Salford.
