The Quilter Foundation, the charity of wealth manager Quilter, is proud to announce the launch of its new Local Community Fund, which gives Quilter colleagues the opportunity to nominate and support charities in their local communities.

The Quilter Foundation’s Local Community Fund will raise vital funds to improve the lives of over 100,000 young people in its local areas, with every pound raised up to £100,000 being matched by Quilter. Throughout the year, nominated charities will receive grants of up to £10,000 per annum to support projects and activities aimed to transform the lives of young people in the UK.

Following a careful deliberation process, four colleague nominated charities were selected by the Quilter Foundation and have been awarded a share of £30,000, including:

  • Rose Road Association, Southampton.
  • Charlie Waller Trust, Thatcham.
  • The Moving on Project, Fareham and Gosport.
  • Healing Waves, Jersey.

The selected charities offer a variety of support for the physical and emotional wellbeing of young people across the UK and Jersey. This includes, but is not limited to, mental health support, tailored care services, confidential counselling and access to therapeutic water sport activities.

Stewart Perry, Head of Responsible Business at Quilter, comments:

 “We are very proud to announce the launch of the Quilter Foundation Local Community Fund and are delighted to have awarded a share of £30,000 to four excellent charities through our first round of funding.

“Over the coming months, the Quilter Foundation will continue its fundraising efforts through a variety of activities, including the annual Quilter Foundation Bike Ride which is set to take place in June. The funds raised will help a vast number of young people across the UK and beyond.

“We would like to thank Quilter colleagues for their continued support and fundraising efforts. The Local Community Fund will have a positive impact on over 100,000 young people in our local communities across the country. During what has been such a critical time for so many, we are committed to doing all that we can to help our local communities.

 The Moving on Project said:

“We would like to thank the Quilter Foundation and the kind member of staff who nominated our charity for so generously supporting The Moving on Project through the Local Community Fund. The donation means that we will be able to support more young people from our community who are facing mental health struggles and want confidential professional counselling and more mental health support.”
