Young Lewisham Project is a registered charity set up in 1974 which provides young people aged 13-19 opportunities to participate in vocational courses and gain new skills and accreditations in a safe environment. Our projects focus on bike and motorbike maintenance, carpentry and wood work skills and gardening. Young people are referred through partner agencies such as schools, pupil referral units, special educational needs schools and children looked after teams. Our young people are usually at risk of offending or exclusion from school or may not be reaching their full potential in a mainstream environment. We rely on grants from trusts and foundations and from donations through sites such as this! Please support us if you can!

The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
