Today’s children and young people are growing up in an extraordinary time of upheaval and an increasingly divided world, still grappling with the impacts of a global pandemic and now in the midst of a cost of living crisis.
Over the course of the pandemic and national lockdown, JLGB and their virtual programmes captured the mood and imagination of us all. They were a shining beacon in a dark time, as JLGB always have been for our community in times of crisis, stepping up to support children, young people and families for 127 years – a long time!
JLGB has always believed in the power and potential of young Jewish people to choose and create their own pathways into their futures, but now with restrictions lifted, the uptake and demand for the services of JLGB and welfare support is unprecedented.
The next generation of British Jews are faced with several issues including identity, uncertainty, mental health, antisemitism and navigating the outside world. JLGB is supporting their journey to adulthood, providing the tools and experiences needed to encounter modern society and build their confidence. With the rising living costs, we want to be able to provide subsidies for young people to ensure that JLGB is accessible to all.
JLGB does not regularly or frequently ask the community to support its work. However, in order to ensure we can make a lasting impact on the next generation, we must invest now.
Every pound you donate to JLGB benefits the entire community and beyond.
A donation to JLGB today will help us deliver all the vital subsidised activities, programmes, social action and volunteering opportunities to thousands of young people who missed out over the past two years – essential learning and development that will help build young people’s resilience for greater emotional, mental and physical wellbeing.
The more you give, the more we can enable the next generation to give back. Besides, every donation made within the 36 hours of the campaign will be matched, DOUBLING YOUR DONATIONS and making a very big difference to our cause.
These donations are vital so JLGB can continue to provide affordable activities for all Jewish young people. Thank you in advance for your support.
