Charities

Voice FM is proud to support local community projects and charities around Southampton and the surround area. Below are details of some of the projects we work together with…

 

U Support was founded by Adam and Tracey Gregory in 2003 and became a registered charity in 2009. It was originally established to provide the opportunity for children/young people with life limiting conditions, disability and disadvantages (who we call U Support Kids) to attend football matches in the UK.

Between 2003 and March 2009 Adam and Tracey personally purchased over 5000 football tickets at Southampton St Marys football stadium.

Currently U Support not only provides the means to attend football matches, but over the last few years has included other experiences such as rugby matches, fishing events, theatre, pop concerts and various other cultural events.

U Support is all about providing opportunities for U Support Kids. They are committed to providing as many experiences, in as many locations; and with as many diverse organisations, clubs and venues, as possible for U Support Kids.

Tickets to attend these events are purchased by U Support who then donate them to U Support Kids, along with their carers. This allows these U Support Kidsto put their personal every day problems behind them, if only for a few hours; and to experience what most of us take for granted.

 

Enham Trust is a pan disability organisation that works with close to 8,500 individuals each year throughout the South, giving them independence, choice and control in the cornerstone areas of their lives; housing, care, work and skills development. 

Enham Trust see the possibilities – not the impossibilities. They want to make life more positive for the thousands of people they support every day. With your support, they have the power to say ‘yes’. Their work enables anyone to say “Yes, I can try that”. “Yes, I can do that” or “Yes, I am in control”..

Enham Trust aim to touch every aspect of the lives of people living with physical and learning disabilities. They offer a number of services for disabled people, putting the power back in to their hands. They ask their clients what they want and build a personal support plan to help them achieve it.
