Darren Jones, Labour MP for Bristol North West, has launched a Charitable Trust to benefit young people across the constituency.

Darren grew up on Henacre in Lawrence Weston – and that street is now the inspiration behind this Trust.

What is The Henacre Trust?

The Henacre Trust is a Bristol-based charity that believes that poverty shouldn’t stop children from achieving. Poverty is destructive and no child should have to experience it, and with over 20,000 children living in poverty Bristol, it’s time we do something.

The Henacre Trust will support local charitable activity where a small amount of funding can make a big difference.  Whether this is making block grants to local charities, debt advice organisations and community projects for them to distribute or  to parents and carers, who need assistance to pay for school uniforms; shoes; books; and other equipment needed for school work.

The Henacre Trust is being administered by the great team at the Quartet Community Foundation.
