The Jack Petchey Foundation Trustees have upgraded TAG Youth Club for Disabled Young People from their silver award programme to their gold programme.

Sir Jack Petchey CBE founded the Jack Petchey Foundation in 1999 to recognise the positive contributions young people make to society and assist them in achieving their potential.  The Foundation support programmes and projects that benefit young people aged 11-25 in London and Essex and have invested over £110 million in such schemes. 

Their major programme, the Achievement Awards is a peer recognition scheme operating in grass roots youth clubs, youth organisations, secondary schools and uniformed organisations.  The young award winners choose how best to spend their £250 award money to the benefit of their club or school – that is over £3 million being invested in youth activity every year!

TAG will now be able to increase the amount of awards we are currently awarding to children and young people from two per term to three per term, with nine awards in total over the year.

We have been busy looking at the costs of our residential trips. Our trips are always subsidised and have been fortunate to have received additional funding in 2018 and 2019 but long term this cannot guaranteed. We’re pleased that subsidies will continue in 2020, however we are proposing the following new price structure to ensure we can cover the costs to the charity:

£250 per person. For those on low incomes, there will be the opportunity to apply for a additional subsidy. We want as many young people to have the opportunity to come away with us and have an action packed short break.

£250 per person who requires their own PA to attend. There will be no charge for the PA.

£400 per person who require TAG to provide 121 support during trip.

Our aim in 2020 will also be to look at additional funding and take part in fundraising activities to be able to reduce the £400, 121 cost to £250 so there is a one price structure for all.
