Who We Are

We are The Starr Trust, registered Charity no. 1127497, formed to support young people to fulfill their potential.

We are an independent, family run charity. Our income comes entirely from community fundraising and events, and donations from generous companies and individuals.

Our Mission

To support young people aged 10 –18 to fulfil their potential through sports, arts and education, by giving a helping hand to achieve their goals at a time when they really need it. We provide:

  • financial grants up to £5000 for young people in need living in the BN post code area of the UK (Edward Starr Awards)
  • training and development of skills
  • connections and mentoring

We do this through local fundraising, events, creating local networks of mentors and other interested professionals, providing opportunities for training and skills sharing and connecting communities locally and around the world. We aim to encourage independent thinking, entrepreneurship and a social conscience in young people through all our activities.

Our Vision

We believe in a world in which young people are supported to achieve their fullest potential; where they flourish as individuals whilst making a positive contribution to their community, and in turn are recognised for their
achievements.
