Strength & Learning Through Horses needs your help

Strength & Learning Through Horses needs your help

Strength & Learning Through Horses is a charity partnership based in Edgware, North London. The charities work with London’s most vulnerable young people, enabling them to turn their lives around when all other interventions have failed. The secret to their success is their 8 special horses. The horses who all have traumatic backgrounds of their own teach the young people how to better recognise and control their emotions and behaviour by reflecting the body language of young people in their own behaviour.

Unfortunately due to COVID19 the stables have been forced to close its doors to clients. While staff are continuing to support young people via phone calls, online video calling and providing educational activities via email the charities have no income coming in for sessions and are struggling to cover the costs of feeding the horses.

The coronavirus crisis is exacerbating the mental health challenges of the young people the charity supports. The feedback is that young people feel like their mental health and wellbeing is in decline and they are desperate to return to the stables to see their favourite horses and start to move forwards positively in their lives again. The charities need the support of the local community to make sure they can still be there for the 300 young people who rely on their support when restrictions are lifted. The charities need to raise £5,000 towards the costs of rent and feeding the horses and are looking for support from anyone that can help. To donate please click here

Feeding the NHS using local businesses

Feeding the NHS using local businesses

Hero Support Team – our aim is to feed the NHS staff helping us to fight Covid-19… whilst supporting local business.

We are working directly with the Royal Free Charity to support all 5 hospitals within the Royal Free Trust (including Barnet, Royal Free London, Chase Farm, Finchley Memorial and Edgware Community hospitals) to fulfil 2 needs: 

  1. To deliver supplies of non-perishable food items donations that have been collected by our wonderful volunteers from your doorstep and delivered directly to the hospital. We encourage everyone who can afford to (please don’t leave yourself short), to just add in an item or 2, or 10 if you can when you do your shopping. To register your goods for collection please visit: goods.herosupportteam.co.uk


  2. To deliver cooked food for lunches and dinners from local restaurants and delivery companies. If you would like to donate towards this then you can do so visiting herosupportteam.co.uk/take-action

Young Barnet Foundation needs your help

Young Barnet Foundation needs your help

In these challenging times, Barnet Together are partnering with the London Borough of Barnet and organisations across the borough to develop a community response to the challenges brought about by the Coronavirus.

Our role will be to support organisations so they can focus on delivery or perhaps to support them deliver differently to meet demand.  As a partnership, we can champion good practice, grow funds and let Generous Leadership shine.  All of these efforts will also ensure vulnerable residents are better supported.

To support local efforts, we have set up a Barnet Community Fund – open to all community and charity groups supporting the Coronavirus community effort in London Borough of Barnet.

This fund will support the following:

  • Food supplies to food banks
    Support smaller groups to deliver on the ground
    Example PPE equipment for volunteers

All details can be found on our website www.youngbarnetfoundation.org.uk/coronavirus
