What we do

The way we provide support to organisations and individuals is by awarding monetary grants based on the following objectives:

Education & Skills:

 

To advance the education, skills and well-being of young people from educationally, economically and socially disadvantaged backgrounds who demonstrate commitment to improve their employability or aspire to attend university

Social Inclusion:

 

To prevent young people from becoming ’socially excluded’ from society as a result of being  from a socially and economically deprived community, in particular those facing homelessness, by assisting them to gain confidence, integrate into society and raise aspirations

 

Equality & Diversity

To promote equality and diversity by advancing education and raising awareness about equality and diversity

 

Organisations we have and continue to support

Amber Foundation - a rehabilitation home in Ockley Surrey
Funding team leaders supporting the young people who have a place at Amber

 "We are hugely grateful for the support of the Rebecca Cannon Vitality Fund. With your help, our Team Leaders are able to help young people like Morgan transform their lives, and we look forward to supporting more young people over the coming year – so, thank you." Amber 2020

Surrey Mediation Service

Funded volunteer intergenerational mediator training to help young people and their families resolve disagreements through improved communication. In some cases this has avoided a young person having to leave home and in others a young person has been reunited with their family at their family home. 

Step By Step- a young people charity 

Funding provided mental health counselling support to young people

Continued bursaries to support young people to continue further education

"The Rebecca Cannon Vitality Fund has supported me throughout my time at university, allowing me to purchase essential textbooks and other learning materials that have helped me work towards (hopefully) a first class honours. It has also motivated me to uphold the values outlined by the Vitality Fund and what Rebecca stood for." Former The Ashcombe School student
