£200raised of £200 target by 13 supporters

    Weʼve raised £200 to support talented and diverse Year Here Fellows to tackle social issues across London

    Funded on Wednesday, 25th January 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    In a fit of charitable madness I'm going to be facing two of my greatest fears (flying and heights) in possibly the most extreme way possible: jumping out of a plane at 13,000 ft.

    The cost for jump has been paid for from my own pocket, so all your support will go to Year Here, a pioneering social business​.

    Launched in 2013, Year Here is a postgraduate course in social innovation based in London, designed to cultivate entrepreneurial approaches to entrenched social problems.

    Year Here Fellows start by spending 5 months volunteering in care homes, homeless hostels and youth services across London where they work directly with service users and lead ‘innovation projects’ that aim to leave a legacy​ and pave the way for future innovations​. Fellows ​then go on to run a community engagement project for a local council or housing association client​ before developing​ their own social venture idea from scratch.

    We will be raising funds for ​Year Here's incubator phase, where Fellows are supported by entrepreneurs and experts to rapidly develop and test their ideas for social change. Many of these seeds grow into successful social businesses and charities beyond the programme. We feel driven to contribute to the growth of a steady stream of new ventures in London that we can support with our digital marketing expertise in the future.

    In the last couple of years, ​the Year Here incubator has​ launched​ a raft of​ social ventures in fields as diverse as ethical fashion, social design, homelessness and educational inequality. They've been recognised as Shackleton Leaders, Ashoka Changemakers, New Radicals and Housing Excellence​ ​Award Winners.

    This is a really good cause, and one I'm proud to risk my sanity for, so please donate if you can spare a couple of quid!
