Superkidz receive super surprise from London Masons

Superkidz have received a grant of £5,000 from the Masonic Charitable Foundation, a Trust open to users in the London Borough of Greenwich. They specialise in work with young offenders, those who struggle with drugs and young people who are victims of child sexual exploitation. In addition to young people between the ages of 16 and 25 experiencing homelessness or a risk of homelessness.

They have used their training and experience to develop a model that enables them to work across several estates and to train other organisations. This model tackles environmental, aspirational and psychological concern that leads to low performance at school, relational and behavioural problems. Their model promotes long term engagement with education, training and employment. It teaches children and young people to relate successfully within wider society. The model works for both crisis prevention and intervention and enables those we work with to act as positive role models within their community.

Their work within the Royal Borough of Greenwich is both preventative and remedial. Nick Russell Manager Superkidz Community Trust commented “On behalf of Superkidz I’d like to thank London Freemasons and the MCF for this very generous donation which will help our charity to enable children and young people to maximise their potential and escape poverty, including inter-generational poverty, and give their own children a better start in life”
