The Access Project is proud to announce it is partnering with Empower London Foundation. As part of this collaboration, we have been selected as one of the official charity partners of the Foundation’s London Festival in 2023. 

Funding from the London Festival in 2023

The Access Project has been selected as one of the charities who Empower London will be fundraising for at their annual London Festival. Other charities selected in 2023 include: the Mayor’s Fund for London, UK Reads and Angel Shed Theatre.

Nathan Sansom, Chief Executive, said: “It is great to have been selected by Empower London as one of London’s ‘brightest’ charities. Disadvantaged students in London have been heavily impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic – and need our support now more than ever. We know our programme makes an enormous impact – this year over two-thirds of our students secured places at top universities. With future funding we can ensure even more students in London access our support and realise their full potential.”

The London Festival is an annual celebration of London’s history, culture and diversity. It celebrates what makes the city a global leader through musical performances, community workshops, fine food and drink and much more. Funds from the event will be used to reinvigorate disadvantaged boroughs by breaking down barriers, championing inclusivity, and helping citizens realise their dreams.

Empower London Foundation

Empower London’s mission is to maintain, improve and expand “extraordinary programmes” already realised by London’s brightest charities. They bolster these initiatives through robust support, access to resources and funding. 

Marina Barros, an Empower London Trustee said: “Getting to work with these charities is something that we’re very proud to announce at Empower London Foundation. The work that these charities are doing is nothing short of inspiring and we can’t wait to help provide funds that will allow them to continue their life-changing work in the communities that need it most across London.”
