I believe education is vital in improving the life chances of individuals, communities and ultimately, organisations within the criminal justice sector. The Longford Trust invested in me after reading a 500 word personal statement. 3 years later, I hope I am a testament to the value and dedication of an organisation who does more than listen.
Can you help change lives?
This year, throughout December, despite the pandemic, I have committed to ‘cycling for success’, with a target of 100 miles a week, to raise money for future Longford Trust scholars. There is no set target but a summary of typical costs:
· £1500 - £3500 per year helps a successful scholar cover living & study costs
· £500 helps a scholar buy a laptop
· £25 can purchase a specialist text book for a Longford Scholar
My life changed through the dedication of an organisation who support financially and through mentoring throughout a three year scholarship. But whose support never really leaves. This is more than bearing witness to traumatic life experiences, Longford Trust takes action to provide second chances through education. It redresses the imbalances affecting many people within the criminal justice system.
