Charity Objectives

What type of Charity are we?

We are a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) with a Foundation governing document, and with a board of Trustees.

What are our Charitable Activities?

The Cathie Stankevitch Foundation delivers community projects and initiatives to alleviate the disadvantages and remove the barriers for social inclusion.

What is our Charitable Purpose?

To promote social inclusion for the public benefit by preventing people from becoming socially excluded, relieving the needs of those people who are socially excluded and assisting them to integrate into society.

For the purpose of this clause ‘socially excluded’ means being excluded from society, or parts of society, as a result of one or more of the following factors; unemployment; financial hardship; youth or old age; ill health (physical or mental); poor education or skills attainment; poor housing (that is housing that does not meet basic habital standards).

Who, and how, are we able to help according to our Charitable Purpose?

The general public/mankind by providing services, advocacy, advice and information in accordance with our Charitable Purpose.

Exactly what can and will the Cathie Stankevitch Foundation do?

– Organise and deliver activity and educational based workshops and training sessions to promote the physical and mental well being of the general public who face multiple barriers and are disadvantaged

– Provide essential equipment to support other charities and groups in delivering community projects in accordance with our own Charitable objectives

– Promote social inclusion by supporting people who are disadvantaged and facing multiple barriers to advancing their opportunities, with training and mentoring enabling them to gain the communication tools required to participate actively in the local community and the broader society.

– Support and work in partnership with other charities and groups by providing a link between them and other organisations, and facilitating a relationship which is streamlined and enables the charity or group to deliver their own purpose effectively.

How will we decide who to help, projects to run and where we show support?

The Cathie Stankevitch Foundation will periodically review its activities and projects and focus resources on those that contribute most to the Cathie Stankevitch Foundation achieving its purpose. We will use feedback provided by those people that we engage with, and we will gather impact statements from individuals and groups that we engage with. We will also look to identify specific individuals and groups that may require our intervention, by building relationships with other local charities and organisations that are already engaged within the community. We will look to develop projects where we have identified gaps and we will look to apply for funding in line with our charitable objectives, and use that funding to deliver projects that satisfy our objects.

Can individuals, groups or organisations apply for funding, grants or financial assistance from the Cathie Stankevitch Foundation?

We will not provide any cash donations. However, as detailed in our Objects and Purposes, we will consider providing vital equipment to support local groups and projects that are run in accordance with our own Objects and Purposes. We can also provide support and assistance in helping other local groups and organisations in identifying funding opportunities and we can also act as a means of obtaining funding on behalf of another group.
