Education & Support for the Young

Enriching young lives

The Peel Group Foundation's aim is to support the advancement of education and enriching young lives through organisations which empower, inspire and build confidence and resilience.

We seek in particular to support the most vulnerable and complex children, young people and families affected by ill health, bereavement, financial hardship or disadvantage.

Although the Foundation has only just been established, we are working in alignment with our business partners, and the projects we are showcasing here are those that have been supported.
