Our Story

Our Story

the7stars foundation, established by the7stars, supports the most challenged 16 year olds and under in the United Kingdom. Assisting forgotten young people lacking opportunity, to achieve their potential.

Our grant funding prioritises the areas of:

  • HOMELESSNESS
  • ADDICTION
  • ABUSE
  • CHILD CARERS

We’d like to hear from both organisations tackling obstacles faced by 16 year olds and under, and 16 year olds and under themselves, experiencing difficulty.

Central to our grant funding are the following values:

Potential

the7stars foundation understands circumstance can hinder our fulfilment. The foundation’s grant programme will work to assist the most challenged 16 year olds and under to achieve their potential.

Opportunity

the7stars foundation recognises there are some young people who face unjust barriers to development and achievement. The foundation’s grant programme will unlock opportunity for the United Kingdom’s most vulnerable young people.

Fairness

We support 16 year olds and under coping with unfair situations. The foundation’s grant programme will fight to further fairness for such individuals.

Impact

We are committed to ensuring each grant advances these values, and supports the most challenged under 16 year olds and under, in the best way possible. Each grant will be assessed on the social impact it has, not just to the applicant and beneficiaries, but also on the wider peer communities working to protect and support young people struggling with difficulties.


Direct Funding For Individuals

We are delighted to partner with Coram Chambers, a leading family law chambers acting in landmark cases in all areas of family law, including public and private law children cases, family finance, adoption, Court of Protection and international children work.

Through our partnership, the7stars foundation and Coram are able to help direct funding to young people directly in the areas prioritised by the foundation.
