City Giving Day Auction in support of The Lord Mayor's AppealRead more ...
All proceeds from the auction will go to the Lord Mayor's Appeal. The auction will close at the City Giving Day Thank You Reception on 31st October.
The Lord Mayor’s Appeal’s ambition to A Better City for All, aims to have a transformational impact on people’s lives by bringing together businesses, neighbouring communities, employees and charities to find solutions to some of London’s most pressing societal issues. We have partnered with five inspirational charities - The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, National Numeracy, Place2Be, OnSide and Samaritans in order to deliver ground breaking programmes which will not only change people’s lives, but save them.
National Numeracy - Building the nation's number confidence and skills
Our partnership will fund a new initiative with National Numeracy – ‘Every Londoner Counts’ – which will help improve employability and financial inclusion by supporting thousands of Londoners in greatest need to build confidence, skills and positive attitudes to basic numeracy through a network of 500 newly-trained Numeracy Champions.
MQ Mental Health Research – Ground-breaking mental health research
Our partnership with MQ will initially enable new research into the impact of the cost of living crisis on the nation’s mental health and produce new recommendations on how we can support the most vulnerable in society. This work will engage stakeholders and communities across the UK to gather their experiences and concerns as this crisis deepens. Coupled with research on suicide, anxiety and depression from MQ's leading scientists; the impact of the research will inform policy and practice, ensuring the UK and the City are ready to support those hardest hit.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award - Life-changing experiences for young people
Our partnership is enabling The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award to extend its reach in London, supporting its ambition for a further 10,000 young people to get the chance to undertake and achieve an Award. They will focus on growing provision in areas of deprivation, ensuring that cost isn’t a barrier to accessing what can be a life changing opportunity for young people.
