The Portman Foundation

One of the ways we support local charities and good causes is through grants from The Portman Foundation. 

In 2018 we are pleased to be able to award grants to eight organisations including Carers Network, Regent Street Cinema, St Johns Hospice and The Serpentine Galleries. 

We are also continuing our support of The Fourth Feathers Junior Club, an after-school club for children aged between 8 and 14 years providing homework support, early intervention and social opportunities to local children at risk of isolation. 

Andrew Mederick, Senior Youth Worker at The Fourth Feathers says 'Since April 2017 we have been fortunate to receive funding from The Portman Foundation.  The significance of this funding has impacted on children, their families and the community as a whole.  Families gain peace of mind knowing their child is being looked after in a safe environment where they are given access to a range of sports, arts and crafts, and culinary activities.  The community benefits by experiencing less issues with children playing on the street.  By supporting our project, The Portman Foundation has also become the catalyst to gaining support from other organisations'.
