The funding will be used to purchase the tools needed to plant the saplings.
We are losing so much of our green habitats with construction and other building that we need to protect and improve the green areas we have. There are so many places that we can plant more trees and we want to get the people involved and aim for 400 native British saplings.
Falkirk Girls' Club
An evidence-based approach to combating human trafficking and modern day slavery.
We are implementing a girls empowerment club in Falkirk. Global Family has implemented girls’ empowerment clubs globally since 2007. These clubs serve to: Mobilise community members for positive social change, Provide support and mentorship to girls, and Prevent abuse.
The club in Falkirk will serve girls from low-income families and communities and will gather weekly for a lesson and activities around being unique, making good friends, and overcoming obstacles in life. The club will be led by three adult, female volunteers who will be managed by the Head of Programmes.
People & Planet - PiP's Local Bee Project
We wish to continue transform local gardens, & support the bee-stocks in the local area.
Working and supporting local bee-keepers, we will spend some funding on native wild flower Beebombs, which will help to bring the bees back to local areas. These contain wild flower seeds that get scattered, watered & grow to restore local bio-diversity. This is a relatively simply task that adults with LD/Autism can do, can maintain (water), & can observe their growth, knowing that they are supporting the environment. We will also purchase small equipment & diverse seeds for planting in local gardens to nurture. Adults with LD will feel engaged supporting their local environment, & feel good.
The World of Work
Our project will deliver workplace visits for pupils with special educational needs, disabilities and autism.
Children and young people with special needs, disabilities and autism face huge barriers to equal educational opportunities and access to employment. We want everyone living with a disability to live the life they choose and it is our mission is to give as many disabled children and young people as possible the skills, training, confidence and support they need to cross these hurdles and achieve inclusion. We work with London’s children and young people with to introduce them to the world of work, to develop the life and work skills needed to move into employment.
INFADENS Family Support Initiative
A small tagline
INFADENS Family Support Initiative, therefore, seeks to provide culturally relevant food items for 10 disadvantaged African families, care packages, vouchers for fresh fruits, and clothing support for children with the help of 3 volunteers. We will also offer 3 months of free chat rooms for families conversations with a friendly team; tips on confidence/capacity building, entrepreneurship measures on how to employ the use of social media platforms to generate income, coaching for the parents on cv preparation to be work ready to match up favorably with the current technological environment, and productive to fend for themselves/their families without being a liability to the society.
Bridgend Farmhouse Community Compost Toilet Build
We want to build a fully wheelchair accessible composting toilet, which will be built by local volunteer trainees.
The timber-frame (and green roof) compost toilet build will be a skills development and community building programme led by specialist green build experts. This will allow people and groups of all ages, abilities and disabilities to run group activities in the woodlands, and use our Bothy and outdoor play facilities at all times of the day and night. The compost toilet would of course have the added environmental benefit of using human waste to create compost for our mini-orchard and educating the general public and volunteers about sustainability.
A human-centric, socially conscious approach is both a moral responsibility and a business imperative.
It’s often said that employees are an organisation’s greatest asset, so how do we ensure that our people are given the opportunity to thrive? Compassionate leadership; diversity and inclusion; positive company culture; these aren’t just fluffy phrases, they’re critical to your success.
Our responsibility doesn’t end there - we must also consider our impact on those outside our own organisation. How do we set the right example, inspire others, and support those in need?
Putting the planet before profit is not a trade-off: it's an investment in our future.
The world has reached a crisis point. Ecosystems are collapsing and climate change is threatening our very existence. Fast fashion, fast food, fast everything... something’s got to give. We have a collective responsibility to alter the way we act to reduce our negative impact on the environment around us.
This challenge brings opportunities for those who are leading the change. Demand for sustainable solutions is unprecedented, as consumers - and investors - increasingly throw their support behind those actively building a better world.
We can't fly blindly into technology's bright light.
Technology has revolutionised the way we live and work in ways that were unimaginable a generation ago. While the relentless march of technology will continue, we must ensure that it’s to the benefit - not detriment - of humankind.
Tech can disregard diversity, overlook rights in favour of a high margin, and utilise questionable - or downright unethical - tactics to influence behaviour. In the same breath, it has the potential to become one of the most effective and widespread forces for good on the planet.
