Last week at FurnitureHireUK.com we’re very happy to reveal that we’re playing our part in supporting the work of a national charity that aims to break down barriers faced by disadvantaged young people.
The Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust
The Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust has recently become one of our partners and we were keen to assist the organisation to fulfil its role in any way we could. Due to our previous work with charities, we’re aware of the importance of donations and how many organisations rely on these alone to make turn their aims and goals into a reality. Because of this, we arranged for the donation and delivery of conference furniture to the charity’s Stephen Lawrence Centre.
We’re very proud to be working with this charity that is dedicated to helping young people from diverse backgrounds to overcome barriers to work and training, as well as creating social change via Stephen Lawrence’s legacy. Set up by Neville and Doreen Lawrence in 1998, the charity has made it possible for disadvantaged youngsters to access training, support and workshops to support them to succeed in a variety of professional environments – from architecture and law through to the creative media. Skills developed include communication, leadership, team building and are aimed at building networks, confidence and a good CV. The organisation also aims to help develop policies in schools and workplaces to address racial inequalities that could stop youngsters from meeting their potential.
Many of these activities take place at the Stephen Lawrence Centre, which opened in 2008. Located in Deptford, we recently visited the centre to donate some of our furniture giving volunteers and visitors to the centre somewhere to learn and carry on the amazing work of this organisation. We are extremely pleased to support the trust in this way and that our products have been so well received with the centre saying: “many thanks to FurnitureHireUK.com for having kindly donated some fantastic conference furniture to the Stephen Lawrence Centre”. We look
forward to developing our partnership with the charity and helping out at future events.
