Arundel Castle Cricket Foundation has launched a two year strategy which includes an enhanced focus on young people’s mental and physical wellbeing.
The Foundation is now in its 32nd year and as part of plans under the leadership of Tim Shutt, the charity has launched a new brand identity and website alongside the release of the 2020-2022 strategy.
The strategy is largely built on partnerships and will seek to boost inclusion, inspire education and learning, and improve mental and physical health.
The impact of COVID-19 brings additional risk to the mental and physical wellbeing of young people and to growing levels of social and educational inequalities. Over the next two years Arundel Castle Cricket Foundation will support three groups of young people through its charitable programmes: those from inner London Boroughs, those with special educational needs and disabilities, and those from local communities. For each group, the purpose will be to deliver a magical experience that will lead to lasting and positive outcomes.
Commenting on the launch of the strategy, Tim Shutt, Director of Arundel Castle Cricket Foundation said:
“The need for what our Charity offers has arguably never been greater and we are very excited about the impact we can have on young people over the next two years. The period of two years allows us to enhance our existing offer and to test some new programmes, all of which whilst assimilating the longer term implications of the pandemic. We are more determined than ever to use our magical space to make a positive difference to the lives of thousands of young people.”
