Dads Campaigner To Launch £1 Million Kids Charity in Brighton
Controversial founder of Fathers 4 Justice, Matt O'Connor, is launching a new social initiative in Brighton that will be for kids and run by kids and is putting £10,000 of his own money to make it happen.
The Future Heroes Project, which has applied for charitable status, aims to give away £1 million in free wonga over the next five years to children who want to make Britain a better place to grow up and help them succeed where society has failed – much of that money will be spent on the South Coast.
£1,000 FREE WONGA WHEN YOU CONGA THIS EASTER IN BRIGHTON
The project will launch this coming Easter Monday with a Conga4kids in Brighton, during which it hopes to give away £1,000 and appoint its first trustees.
The project is inviting applications from kids groups and local projects for the money.
This will be followed by Britains Biggest ever Conga in London on 15th June for Fathers Day.
In addition to making Britain a better place to grow up, The Future Heroes Project aims to help children develop the 3 Rs - developing self-respect and respect for others, building relationships that last and learning to take positive risks.
Said O'Connor, “I picked Brighton because of the recent crime figures which showed that 10,000 teens are arrested in the area each year. I wanted to contribute something to help all children, not just the young offenders from fatherless families that sparked my concern in the first place. What I have been saying for the last five years about family breakdown is slowly gaining currency as a political topic, but I believe that those people best placed to help kids are still failing them.”
“When the UNICEF report came out putting Britain bottom out of 21 first-world countries when it came to a child’s welfare and well-being, I knew it was time to do something. I will endeavour that our children have the best possible tools to build a better Britain and ensure that our country remains our country.’
O'Connor says that the charity is looking for an enthusiastic and seasoned professional to run the project while he plans a US launch for the project next year.
For information please contact Matt on 07795 547 374 or Glen on 07981 334 222.
HOW FUTURE HEROES WILL WORK:
The charity will appoint a hero aged 13-19 from every region in the country to form a national board of heroes. The board will meet regularly to consider applications for funding from children who have ideas for projects that aim to make Britain a better place to grow up. The board will award grants of up to £1,000 with the average grant being £500. The aim is to make 2,000 grants over five years.
Future Heroes executive board may commission research looking at the impact of family relationship breakdown on child well-being and advocate new approaches to promoting child well-being and tackling family breakdown at a political level.
