Jack Petchey Foundation

Almost 2,000 schools, colleges and youth organisations throughout London and Essex run the Jack Petchey scheme, which contributes millions of pounds each year. The scheme is a reward and recognition initiative which enables schools and youth organisations to celebrate the achievements of their young people as well as receive additional funding.

The following provides more information about the programme:

1. Participating groups regularly select a young person to receive an Achievement Award.
2. The nomination and selection processes are led by the young people within your organisation.

3. When a winner is selected they are publicly congratulated for their achievement and receive:

·         A framed certificate and badge

·         Membership of the JPF Achievers community

·         £250 to be spent on a something of their choice that will benefit your organisation (for example, a piece of equipment, a day out for the team, a specialist trainer to come in give a session).

4. Award winners are further recognised by attending one of the celebration events where they are congratulated on stage in front of friends and family.

5. In order to make this run smoothly, each school or club has a ‘coordinator’ who is responsible for the internal management and overseeing of the scheme in the school. This person can be in regular contact with our Grants Officers to gain support and advice.

Last month saw 4 of our swimmers receive Jack Petchey awards for their efforts/achievements at the Queens Theatre in Hornchurch.

Unfortunately Asra could not be at the evening, but I’m sure you will join us congratulating the 4 swimmers on their awards.
