Become a friend

Can you picture a world where everyone has a fair chance to succeed, regardless of their background? We’re working hard at the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust to make that a reality.

Change lives today

Too many young people still struggle to fulfil their potential because they are disadvantaged by factors beyond their control, such as where they are born, the school they go to, or discrimination they may face. At the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust, we don’t accept that your background should limit what you can achieve.

Join our community of Friends

Our Friends know that our inspirational programmes make a real difference to the young people and communities we work with, broadening their view of what’s possible and helping them gain the knowledge, skills, and qualifications they need to succeed.

As a Friend of the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust, you can give knowing your support is helping improve lives. In return, we’ll make sure that we let you know how your support is making a difference.

Members of the scheme receive benefits including a welcome pack and pin badge, a dedicated quarterly newsletter and invitations to events such as the annual Stephen Lawrence Memorial Lecture.

Sign up today to become a Friend for just £5 per month or £60 per year. Contact or call 0208 100 2800 to join the scheme.

For those that are interested in giving at a higher level, we can offer the opportunity to become a Bronze, Silver or Gold Friend of the Trust. As a vital contributor to our work, you’ll have the chance to experience first-hand how your support makes a difference.

Become a corporate friend

If your company is looking to give to charity in a simple but effective way that demonstrates your CSR commitment, why not become a Corporate Friend of the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust? Making a donation to our work means more than just helping us to invest in our high-impact programmes and reach more young people, it also means that when we talk about our work, we can show funders and decision makers that others share our commitment.
