Our vision is of a community where displaced young people are valued, supported and given the opportunity to create better outcomes for themselves.
Big Leaf Foundation is a small charity working with displaced young people aged 16-25 living in Surrey.
Our aim is to provide a nurturing programme of activities, projects and events that focus on combating social isolation and improving wellbeing for the young people we support.
We want to engage the young people we work with to be excited about the opportunities available to them, and to value their unique talents and abilities so that they can rediscover their potential and move forward with renewed optimism. We want to support and empower these young people to know they are more than the status they have been given, and help them find their place within the local community.
Our projects range from sports, equine-assisted learning and creative arts projects to providing casework support and residential workshops, alongside our online programmes, built in response to the restrictions on social contact during the pandemic.
