The Foundation is also hoping to launch a new initiative in schools in Brighton in the spring that will award grants to school students who come up with their own ideas of ways to help the young.  If this is successful they may also bring this scheme to schools in West London.

The Sam Griffiths Foundation is a charitable trust set up to remember a remarkable young Chiswick man who died in 2009, aged 16. As Sam had a particular affinity with younger children, the foundation works to continue his legacy by finding ways to support existing charities who ‘help the young help the young’.
