Jack Petchey Foundation
Inspiring young people


Established in 1999, the Jack Petchey Foundation gives grants to programmes and projects that benefit young people aged 11-25. 


The Foundation exists to raise the aspirations of young people, to help them take advantage of opportunities and play a full part in society.

What we do


The Jack Petchey Foundation funds a number of major programmes - all of which support young people throughout London and Essex. 


Our flagship programme is the Jack Petchey Achievement Award Scheme. It is run in almost 2,000 schools, colleges and youth organisations throughout London and Essex and contributes millions of pounds each year. The scheme is a reward and recognition initiative which enables schools and youth organisations to celebrate the achievements of their young people as well as receive additional funding. 


Alongside the Achievement Award the Jack Petchey Foundation funds a number of other major programmes


Since it has been established the Jack Petchey Foundation has awarded grants totalling over £85 million.
