Charity Partners 2020-21
Each year Campbell Tickell nominate two charity partners, one UK-focused and one with an international focus, to support over the course of a year. This year we have nominated to support The Black Curriculum and Safe Passage. Read more about them.
1. The Black Curriculum
The Black Curriculum aims to deliver black British history all across the UK. They run a range of variety of virtual and in-person programmes to schools, young people and corporations to promote the importance of Black history. They also have a curriculum and develop free and licensable resources for schools to teach students about Black history.
The aim is to prepare students to become fully rounded citizens and ready for an increasingly globalised world. The curriculum is grounded in the arts for young people to engage with history imaginatively, encouraging student satisfaction and critical thinking skills. Through The Black Curriculums holistic approach they aim to remedy a wider systemic issue.
Our donation will be used towards funding the organisations National Youth Ambassador Scheme Programme which will be launching next year.
2. Safe Passage
Safe Passage’s vision is for every person seeking sanctuary to access legal routes to reach safety and for there to be support for them when they arrive in their new home. Their expert team uses a unique combination of legal work and litigation, campaigning and arrivals support to make this a reality.
Unaccompanied children are left trapped in desperately inadequate living conditions across Europe, despite many of them having a legal right to travel to safety. Collective political failure, by nation states and at the EU-level, has led to a disjointed response to the refugee crisis, and as a result, children are being denied their right to travel safely and legally to a place where they can rebuild their lives. Safe Passage fill a vital gap between frontline workers in camps or on the streets in Europe and organisations who support refugees and asylum seekers arriving in destination countries, like the UK.
Our support will enable Safe Passage to continue this ground-breaking work and continue to push for a commitment from the government to ensure refugee rights remain, especially for children, are installed again after Brexit.
